From Rollx Vans to you, we would like to say Happy Father’s Day to all of the fathers out there. Being a dad isn’t always easy, and it’s rarely glamorous, yet so many amazing fathers continue to do so many amazing things for their families. And so, we wish you well on this Sunday, June 16, 2013.
Hopefully you get some time to relax and simply enjoy your family.
For those of you who aren’t yet fathers, this weekend is a great opportunity to show some appreciation to either your own father or a father-figure in your life. If you happen to know a father who’s in a wheelchair, we know a perfect way to show a little love…
Best Dad on Wheels 2013
You may recall that the Best Mom of Wheels 2013 just ended, but the Best Dad on Wheels has only just begun. Just like the Best Mom contest, Best Dad on Wheels is an annual contest held by the Dana and Christopher Reeve Foundation.
The purpose is to spotlight some exceptional fathers across the country who also happen to be wheelchair users.
How is a person entered? It’s simple. Someone simply goes to the official site here and enters the father’s name and a little bit about what makes them so great. A panel of judges narrows the initial submissions down to a list of 10. Those 10 finalist’s stories are posted online where the general public can then vote on them.
Whoever gets the most votes wins a $500 gift card to Tilt-A-Rack.
The entry deadline is open through Midnight of June 17, so you’ll want to hurry! Last year’s winner was Steve Laux of Minneapolis, MN. Steve is father to three daughters, a four year old girl and twin two year olds.
Obviously he has his hands pretty full, and yet he continuously goes above and beyond the call of duty. If you yourself knows a father who also goes beyond the call, nominate him. It’s a great way of saying thanks.
