Current Colts coaches Jim Caldwell and Clyde Christensen will host the event
The All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience is returning to Indianapolis on Friday, May 14, from 6-9 p.m. ET at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center. Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell, a new official spokesman for All Pro Dad, and offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen will serve as hosts for the event.
"It is an honor to add Coach Caldwell to our All Pro Dad family as an official spokesman," said National All Pro Dad spokesman and former Colts Head CoachTony Dungy. "Jim has done a great job of being a dad for his four children. Working together for eight years, I saw him do a great job of balancing the responsibilities of parenting with the demands of work."
The Father & Kids Experience is a hands-on event providing inspirational bonding opportunities for dads and their kids. Dads and kids will spend the evening running football-themed drills equipping dads on how to be better fathers, while spending quality time interacting with their kids.
"First, I'm honored to be a part of All Pro Dad," Caldwell said. "Coach Dungy, Coach Christensen and so many others have done a magnificent job of demonstrating the importance of being a great father while balancing the other parts of their lives, including work. This event is just one way to bring fathers and their children together, and that's the goal, to show them how important and influential they are to their children. It's a great event for a great cause, and I'm happy to be a part of it."
Registration opens April 14, 2010, online at http://www.AllProDad.com, and is only $15 per family, which includes admission for one adult and up to four children. The event is recommended for children ages five and older. Advanced registration is required and early registration is encouraged as the event is expected to sell out.
"We love seeing that this has become an annual outing for dads and kids," said Mark Merrill, founder and president of Family First. "Each year we bring new themes and insights into the program, so the format remains familiar, but the concepts are fresh for returning dads and kids."
The All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience is sponsored by hhgregg, along with Riley Hospital for Children, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana, and media partners WFMS/WJJK/i94 (WRWM) and Comcast.
