Ep 43: The work to end father absence, with Chris Brown of the National Fatherhood Initiative

This week's Fit Dad Fitness Podcast guest is Chris Brown, President of the National Fatherhood Initiative. NFI is a non-profit dedicated to ending father absence by equipping communities and organizations with resources and information "to intentionally and proactively engage fathers in their children's lives."


Chris has been with the organization for two decades, and his story about how he came to lead NFI is quite remarkable considering his strained relationship with his own father growing up.


What makes Chris' story even more awesome and completely relevant to Fit Dad Fitness is that Chris and his father eventually reconciled their relationship through fitness. It's an amazing story, along with the work that Chris and the NFI team are doing to get more fathers to lead active, involved, healthy lives with their children.


Check out NFI's resources on its website, including its program locator, which can help you find a fatherhood program near you.
