The I Am a Father Initiative

Join in the excitement of the 3rd annual I Am a Father 5K event. The event has a focus on health and wellness, youth development and mentoring, and family engagement. Highlights of the day include the signature warm-up with Stepp Stewart, live entertainment from local artists, vendors, health screenings and the 5K Road Race & Tot Trot. In only its 2nd year the event hosted over 800 participants.  Now in its 3rd year, the event has expanded to Birmingham, Alabama, hometown of Founder/CEO David Manuel. Celebrating fatherhood, family and fitness, the I Am a Father 5K event is the place to be.


While finding the perfect words to describe fatherhood may be a challenge to some, David Manuel found voices that did just that.  Inside the testimonials of his self-published book, “I am a Father, Celebrating African-American Fathers”, Manuel displays famous fathers at their most vulnerable – in love with their children, in the most important role of their lives – Father.
