Father’s Day Walk-A-Son to assist Single Fathers’ Association

Published: 
Friday, June 13, 2014
Errol Fabien is known as a comedian but the Single Fathers Association is a cause he takes quite seriously.

Errol Fabien will host the first Fun Father’s Day 5K Walk-A-Son, on June 15, starting at the Eddie Hart Savannah in Tacarigua at 7 am. 

 

The well-known comedian, media presenter and motivational speaker came up with the idea for the walking race in order to raise national awareness about the needs of males in our society.

 

The fun event is open only to fathers, step-fathers, grand-fathers and their sons, while proceeds will go towards establishing a special hotline for men, through the Single Fathers’ Association of T&T (SFATT).

 

On race day participants will start at the Eddie Hart Savannah, proceed west along the Eastern Main Road until Evans Street (just opposite to Hi Lo Food Stores, St Augustine); cross the Priority Bus Route and continue west along Clifford Street to the finish line at Gayelle Studio car park.

 

Added attractions at the Walk-A-Son include prizes for the youngest father-son pair, the most grey-haired pair and the participant with the “yummiest tummy,” along with other fun categories.

 

In a release, Fabien described the event as a “fun, family-oriented affair, which encourages fit and healthy lifestyles, all towards building a spirit of community within our country.”
