Fathers Honored Nationally

The Father's Day/Mother's Day Council, in partnership with the American Diabetes Association, hosts "Father of the Year" Award events in various cities across the United States. This program had its humble beginning in 1999, with the formation of volunteer regional Father's Day Councils.

Each year, regional Father's Day Councils recognize numerous fathers, from within their community, for the outstanding strength, commitment and love they exhibit as fathers with their families. These Fathers, while not only attaining success in their chosen field of endeavor, have carved out time to teach and mature their children, while maintaining a balance as good citizens and proud members of their community.

The Council stands proud to support the work of the American Diabetes Association in finding a cure for a disease the affects nearly 26 million children and adults nationwide. To date, $50 million dollars has been raised from honoring outstanding fathers at Father of the Year Award events. These proceeds will continue to will help the American Diabetes Association fund essential advocacy, education and research initiatives.

We encourage everyone to attend and support a Father of the Year Award event in a city near you.
