Dadfest Celebrates Fathers

The 19th annual Dadfest 5K run and festival will be held on June 16, Father’s Day weekend, in Richardson, to honor dads and to celebrate their
contributions and importance to the American family.

Onsite registration begins at 6:30 a.m., followed by a 50-yard dash at 8 a.m., and a 5K run at 8:15 a.m. The races use a disposable timing system to precisely record times, which comes with the bib number at race packet pick-up.

A dad and child look-a-like contest begins at 9:15 a.m. with the Diaper Dash race scooting along at 9:30 a.m., allowing families to participate in both, which is bound to generate
photos and memories. The awards ceremony is at 10 a.m.

All proceeds from the events will go to the nonprofit Urology Research & Education Foundation (UREF), founded for the purpose of promoting awareness about prostate cancer and
urologic diseases. A free prostate cancer risk assessment and screening is available for men that register beforehand online at

Attendees are encouraged to bring towels and a change of clothes. Parking is free and the DART Galatyn station is adjacent to the event.

Location: 2351 Performance Dr, Galatyn Park, Richardson. For more information, including costs and early packet pick-up, call 817-706-0368 or visit
