MFC to Host 2021 Daddy and Me 5K

Insta 8 Daddy Me 5K

Daddy and Me 5k 

On June 19th, 2021, Midlands Fatherhood Coalition (MFC) will be hosting its famous 5k Run. A day for the entire family. Starting at the Saluda Shoals Park, registration only costs $30. Check-in will begin at 7 am, and the actual race will commence at 8 am. 

Last year, the pandemic forced the organization to cancel the run, but fortunately, Summer 2021 brings the annual Father's Day Celebration back with the in-person Daddy & Me 5k. What better way to celebrate than to get heartbeats racing, calories burning, and families together. 

Just like Rev.McDowell iterated during the Dad's Den event on May 12th, "fatherhood is embracing strength and courage even when you find yourself wrestling with the vicissitudes of life." 

"We're excited for this year's Daddy and Me 5K. We're grateful for the tremendous support in prior years from Serve and Connect and Springdale Police Department. We're expecting great things for this year as well. If anyone is looking for a great family activity for Father's Day weekend, look no further!" says Midlands Fatherhood Coalition CEO, Angela McDuffie. 

The 5k run promises to be rewarding, as proceeds will go to further the organization's cause to bring families together, celebrate, and support dads.
