Thanks to all who participated in the 20th Anniversary of the DadsDay Run!

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.

Runners, walkers (bring your dog!), and strollers with kids are all invited to register to participate in the race.  NEW LOCATION:  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.

DadsDay Run is an important event for Family Connections and we will continue this annual community tradition with a live run! This fundraiser provides significant financial support to allow us to continue to provide programs and services to families raising young children.
