The event will begin with a family breakfast hosted by District 1 Commissioner Kevin Dorsey and Healthy You at Walton Park from 8 a.m.-10 a.m. Then, visit one of the participating shops for a haircut and information on how to be a healthy, active father. The five shops participating are Styles Unlimited, Squirt and Louie's, DJ's Classic Cuts, H Town Barbershop and His and Hers Barber and Beauty.
This event is part of the national campaign through President Obama’s Fatherhood Initiative, Fatherhood Buzz. This event is typically done four times per year. Fatherlessness is a growing crisis in America, one that underlies many of the challenges that families are facing. When dads aren't around, young people are more likely to drop out of school, use drugs, be involved in the criminal justice system, and become young parents themselves.
