2nd ANNUAL DADS, MALES, & MENTORS WALK FOR LIFE 5K VIRTUAL RUN/WALK
“IN THE WALK FOR LIFE EVERY STEP MATTERS”
UNITING FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES TO SUPPORT MEN’S HEALTH AND MENTAL WELLNESS.
The collaborative non-profit partnership of Dad Kronicles, Inc., Life Jackets, and World
Youth Foundation, Inc. are launching their second 5K Walk For Life. Our collective
vision is to have all fathers positively involved in the lives of their children and families
while encouraging the importance of health, nutrition, and mental wellness. We
encourage peer mentoring to support men’s mental health and provide the tools needed
for success. In the Walk for Life Every Step Matters and it's a Family Affair! Our coalition
remains purposeful and intentional in its efforts as all metrics prove involved fathers and
male mentors are powerful instruments for helping children reach their full potential. We
work year round with mentors and positive father figures to provide support, advice,
friendship, reinforcement and practical models for their life’s walk.
COVID-19 CONTINUES TO SHAPE OUR PLANS FOR OUR EVENT, BUT COVID WILL NEVER CHANGE
THE FAITH OF OUR CONVICTIONS
