FATHERS IMPART DESTINY
17 years ago the Family Foundation Fund established it’s annual 5K Run/ Walk for Fatherhood to raise awareness for the need of fathers in the lives of at-risk youth in Middle Tennessee.
Fatherless youth represent 71% of High School dropouts, 70% of Juvenile Delinquents, 63% of Youth suicides, and the statistics go on and on.
The inaugural race was held at Crockett Park in Brentwood, TN, and eventually moved to Shelby Bottoms Park in East Nashville which served as the host site for many years. In 2013 The Fontanel became the host site for the annual run and remains the host site til this day.”The 5k at Fontanel” was formerly a part of ‘The Fatherhood Games” field day event
