The hhgregg All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience is coming to Indianapolis on Saturday, Nov.13, from 2–5 p.m. ET at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center, and will be hosted by Super Bowl-winning Indianapolis Colts coaches and All Pro Dad spokesmen Jim Caldwell and Clyde Christensen.
All Pro Dad also congratulates national spokesman Tony Dungy on being inducted into the Indianapolis Colts Ring of Honor tonight.
"Tony Dungy has been champion coach, husband, father, mentor and friend for decades," said Mark Merrill, founder and president of Family First. "I can't think of a more honorable man to be included in the Indianapolis Colts Ring of Honor."
The Father & Kids Experience is a hands-on event providing inspirational bonding opportunities for dads and their kids. Dads and kids will spend the afternoon running football-themed drills equipping dads on how to be better fathers, while spending quality time interacting with their kids.
"All Pro Dad is grateful for the those who lead the charge for us in Indianapolis," said Dungy. "Without the help of guys like Coach Caldwell and Coach Christensen, we couldn't do what we do to get the word out to dads on the importance of spending time and being present with their kids."
Registration is now open, online at 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 are excited to be coming back to Indianapolis again this year," said Merrill. "For each event 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, FedEx, Campbell's Chunky Soup, Kohl's Department Stores, Riley Hospital for Children, Walmart, Sam's Club, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana, Indiana Wesleyan University, The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, Comcast, WFMS, WJJK and i94.
