Hall of Fame All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience Testimonials


The best of the day for me was writing the letters to each other. I do not always see the affection from my kids. My kids and I had a great day and grew much closer together. Thank you. - Kurt

My favorite moment was hearing my two sons chanting, "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy!" as I prepared to kick a field goal. It reminded me of how much fun my boys and I have together and how much they look up to me as a father. Being a father is an awesome responsibility. We had a blast and so did all the men and their children attending this event. - Scott

My favorite moment was just getting to share the time with my boys. I have MS, so there is no telling what the future holds. Everything was a good experience. - Thomas

Both my wife and I have spent a combined 5 years in Iraq¸ and the worst part of it wasn't the combat ...it was being away from our kids. Events like this are far better than the best amusement parks or the greatest toys. Thankfully, my wife and I returned home from Iraq untouched for the most part. I broke my neck and am not allowed to play soldier anymore, but I recovered fully and am able to enjoy an active life with my kids. My job consumes a great deal of my time, but being able to tuck my kids into bed every night is a blessing. I was born and raised in Ohio and am a huge football fan, but this event was the first time to the Hall of Fame for my entire family. It was a far better experience than any of us could have imagined. Thanks to the entire Family First organization and everyone involved. - Chris
