DadsDay Run is coming!

It’s the 20th Anniversary of the DadsDay Run in 2022

The Family Connections DadsDay Run, founded by Peter Nagusky, has been a remarkable success for 20 years! Since the beginning we have raised over $500,000 in net proceeds to support our mission of engaging families with young children.

Peter will be serving as Honorary Chair for the 20th Anniversary DadsDay Run. He is a former Family Connections board member and the race founder.

It will be an exciting and fun event

Runners, walkers (bring your dog!), and strollers with kids are all invited to register to participate in the race.  It will be held, rain or shine, at the Colonnade near the Shaker Main Library and the Stephanie Tubbs Jones Community Center.  There will be free food and beverages, plus Flower Clown, Devon the DJ, and Matt Winz, your favorite WKYC TV weatherman will be on-hand to add to the fun.

And all race participants, including your dogs, will receive a free tie!  It’s a traditional symbol of Dear Old Dad!

Why do we do this?

Our mission is to nurture social connections, enhance child development, and improve school readiness in our communities.  And these past two years, more than ever, parents need the Family Connections continuum of services to navigate these challenging times with the parenting support and school readiness programs we provide to them.

Registration is open now!
