My Message

Why fathers matter?

Fathers, like mothers, are pillars in the development of a child’s emotional well-being. Children look to their fathers to lay down the rules and enforce them. They also look to their fathers to provide a feeling of security, both physical and emotional. Children want to make their fathers proud, and an involved father promotes inner growth and strength. Studies have shown that when fathers are affectionate and supportive, it greatly affects a child’s cognitive and social development. It also instills an overall sense of well-being and self confidence.

For this very reason, I am cycling from Sydney to Canberra this May in The Fathering Project’s Big Push charity bike ride. Run over 3 days and covering 280kms, the Big Push is a challenging cycling event that brings fathers, father figures (and family members) together with one goal: celebrating their most important role – being a dad.

Please sponsor me and support my 280km ride to support The Fathering Project in their mission to ensure that every child in Australia has an effective father figure.

In 2020, all funds raised from the ‘Big Push’ will go towards keeping The Fathering Project’s regional NSW program going in the drought-stricken and bushfire-ravaged areas around Tamworth and Armidale. The Fathering Project wants to continue inspiring dads and father-figures to be proactively engaged in parenting. No matter the circumstances, every child in Australia deserves to have an effective father figure.
