MADISON, Wis., April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Father's Day is not for another two months, but Madison-area dads who are looking to have a fun-filled day with their children can do just that at the Day with Dad event that is being held this Saturday, April 22.
Presented by Zimbrick, the 17th annual Day with Dad event will be taking place at the Keva Sports Center in Middleton, WI. The event will run from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Kids of all ages are encouraged to join in on the fun with their dad or granddad, but moms are welcome too. No registration is needed, and drop-ins are welcome, however, children must be accompanied by an adult if under 18 years of age.
There will be a number of activities taking place during the Day with Dad event, including sports such as soccer, basketball, football and more. There will be a live DJ, inflatables and local first responders. The UW-Wisconsin and Marquette teams will be present to play Quidditch with the kids, and there will also be a number of local vendors providing free samples throughout the day.
The event is free, though participants are encouraged to bring cash donations or new or gently used books. All cash and book donations will benefit the REACH-A-CHILD foundation—a charity that works with first responders to ensure that they have the necessary tools to reach children in crisis.
This year, the fundraising goal is $2,500. The hope is to raise enough money to provide the Middleton and Cross Plains Police Department with six backpacks for their police cars, as well as ten additional backpacks for the police cars in the Town of Madison. The backpacks are filled with books and other items that can help to take children's minds off the situation when there is a crisis taking place.
