15th Annual “Fathers Walk” Goes Virtual October 15
Cuyahoga County will celebrate its 15th annual Fathers Walk next week Thursday, Oct. 15. This event encourages fathers and father figures to actively participate in their children’s education by taking the “Fathers Walk Pledge.”
This year, organizers are offering a virtual Fathers Walk beginning at 9 a.m. Find out more at neofathering.net, or register at us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEkceqppzMtGtZKwwyuaD3M7X1ohLcQ-rWb.
First held in 2006, the Fathers Walk is hosted by the Healthy Fathering Collaborative, Passages, and the Cuyahoga County Fatherhood Initiative. WKYC Studios sponsors the event.
Fathers play an important role in child development. That’s why we’re researching connections between fathers, their feelings, and their young children.
Our Father’s Feelings Study enrolls dads with babies 12 months old or younger. We’re looking at unique ways fathers raise their children and how fatherhood affects their lives. Find out more at familyandcommunityimpact.org/fathers-feelings-study.
Meanwhile, our Joyful Together study encourages joy and play between parents and children through simple activities we developed through our Joyful Together model. This opportunity is for families with children 3 months old up to 10 years old. Find out more at familyandcommunityimpact.org/clinical-innovations/joyful-together.
We currently are conducting all our studies remotely, using videoconferencing and our Research Portal.
