Cycle To End Father Absence - LA

C2EFA is a fundraising and awareness campaign established to address the issue of father absence, one of society's greatest challenges. All proceeds will be used to fund the Special Fathers Network, a dad to dad mentoring program for fathers raising kids with special needs and the Ryan M. Hanson Memorial Internship.

Riders, also known as DADvocates (including women and men, young and old), each ride to support the cause. These healthy, high energy events are a great way to engage and show your support for kids and dads. Each registered rider will receive a commemorative C2EFA/Cyclebar t-shirt, two Great Dad Coins, a CycleBar water bottle, a free CycleBar pass and the satisfaction of making a difference in the lives of youth through greater father involvement.

Story

21st Century Dads Foundation

21CDF is a 501c3 created to address the issue of father absence, one of the root causes of what ails society.

THE PROBLEM

There are approximately 24 million kids growing up across America without their dads. Children from father-absent homes are more likely to; drop out of school, abuse drugs and alcohol, get involved with crime and become incarcerated, become teen parents, have psychological problems and commit suicide.

There are a number of factors contributing to father absence, including, but not limited to:

  • Out-of-Wedlock Births, which have increased from 11% in 1970 to 41% today
  • Divorce, which strikes and estimated 1:2 marriages,
  • Lack of Paternity Establishment, which is greater than 50% in some communities,
  • Incarceration, which is more acute in certain populations,
  • Abandonment, which can be both physical and emotional
  • Lack of Employment, which results in lack of supporting basic needs
  • Death, which occurs prematurely too often among low income families.
