Join us! NCFM is proud to be a sponsor of the this first ever event. Make sure there is a Fathers' Day event lik this in your community too! Get busy! Celebrate Dads!

The National Coalition For Men will be participating in the first ever Fathers’ Day Walk-a-thon in San Diego. The event is a kick off for the newly formed San Diego Children Coalition. We will have a booth and if things go right, there will be a large National Coalition For Men banner at the start/finish line.

NCFM is a founder of the San Diego Children Coalition and we are honored to be involved in this first ever celebration of Fathers.

I am hoping that anyone in the area on this list will help and participate. If you would like to do either please email me as soon as possible. If you are a business owner, you might consider having a booth at the event.

We need walkers! Hundreds and hundreds of walkers! Since this is the first year of this event, we need people to join us. We need to make this successful so we can stage it year after year.

Bring your Dad! Have some fun!

Join help and us, bring everyone you know and have fun. It is a day for Dads and we are celebrating it the day before Fathers’ Day so Dad still has one day to do whatever he wants!

This is a historic event. You do not want to miss being a part of it. Join us.

See NCFM Wayback

waybackmachineOver the years millions of people worldwide have visited a National Coalition For Men website. Also over the years the site has changed dramatically, been taken down, moved, and otherwise uprooted. In those processes much information was lost, not recovered, and does not appear on this site. However you can see earlier versions and many of the extraordinary accomplishments of NCFM back to 1996 by using the WayBackMachine. In the search box type www.ncfm.org

Attend if you can!!
