Father's Day Give-Away

I recently awarded our Mother's Day Give-Away winner with a lovely gift package from Balance Bar. Read more about what our winner had to say about inspiring healthy eating here. I loved it!

We have not forgotten about the Dads--and know that they inspire healthy lifestyles in their own way too. So we're also hosting a Father's Day give-away in honor of the healthy Daddies out there! Thanks again to my friends at Balance Bar, I'll be giving away a terrific Father's Day gift package to one lucky winner. The only requirement is that you are (or someone you know is) a Dad who inspires his family to be healthy through physical activity. Visit my Facebook page to enter!

I may not be the sportiest one of the bunch (in fact, I know Mr. Patton must be laughing right now because I might just be the least sporty...) but I have fond memories of trips to the park, flying kites and playing Frisbee, baseball and putt-putt with my Dad growing up. He certainly helped me grow up healthy because the things we did together were most often physical activities.

Since the foundation of good nutrition habits is built when we're young, Dads can really make a difference for years to come. I want to know how you inspire your family (or how a Dad you know inspires theirs) to make physical activity an important part of their lifestyles. Is your Dad the bike-ride leader? Back yard baseball referee? Sports coach? Share the health by sharing your inspiring ways with others!

The most health-inspiring Dad will win this prize from Balance Bar (read my review on BARE bars):

  • 15 Balance BARE bars (5 Sweet & Salty Chocolate Almond, 5 Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter and 5 Blueberry Acai)
  • a BPA-free water bottle with a compartment for your BARE bar, a closeable drinking spout and dust cap
  • a Father's Day card featuring this quote, "You deserve a BARE hug!"
Your gift will arrive wrapped handsomely with a raffia bow. It's a prize valued at $27.00! Perfect for active fathers on-the-go. Win it by entering the contest on my Facebook page (or purchase the gift set here). I'll select one person who shares the most inspiring idea for helping to keep families active as my winner! The winning idea will also be shared on my blog on Father's Day. Entries are due by midnight on June 6.
