Strong Dads Coming Together for a Strong Cause

Who are the Funding Fathers?

These 12 dads were chosen for their commitment to their families and the community. They will have until the middle of August to fundraise. They will be doing virtual spots, fun events, securing sponsors, and asking friends to support their campaigns. The dad who raises the most will be crowned The Father Figure.
