The Cause - Fathers Helping Fathers
All of the proceeds from the Halloween Hustle 5k will go directly to benefit Fathers Helping Fathers, a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping fathers' rights in the areas of parenting and raising awareness about the positive influence committed fathers have on the development of their children.
FHF develops educational classes and development programs that help fathers in every aspect of being a parent from pre-birth classes, toddler training, and dealing with teenagers. FHF is also a frontrunner in the struggle to raise awareness about the positive influence fathers have on the development of their children and on the family structure itself. Fathers Helping Fathers is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation and all donations are tax deductible. To learn more about FHF, please visit their website.
