There will be more here. More words. More plans. More fundraising. More hope. There will be lots more of everything.
Today is February 20, 2016 and just moments ago #TheWalkingDads were announced at the Dad 2.0 Summit. It was announced in a crowded room that 12 men will walk 84 miles across the United Kingdom, the length of Hadrian’s Wall, to raise money for Camp Kesem in honor of their late friend Oren Miller. People clapped. There were tears. There will be more of that here, too.
For now we have this website: Dads4Kesem; and like everything to follow it is certainly not enough. But it’s a start, and there will be more.
Please come back for updates, which will be fast and plenty, and follow #TheWalkingDads and #Dads4Kesem on social media. We’ll all start it together, and we’ll do more with every new day that meets us.
UPDATE: Show your support with the shirt upon you back. All proceeds from the Dads4Kesem store go to Camp Kesem.
