Isn’t Dad the coolest?

I know mine is pretty rad, and I’ll bet you know yours is, too.

It’s Father’s Day weekend in northern Virginia, and you’re looking forward to celebrating that guy who has devoted his life to taking care of you and your family. You have brunch plans at Mon Ami Gabi in Reston Town Center, and on your way, you’ll sneak off to see your favorite fine jeweler, to pick up the most perfect gift of all: That Raymond Weil watch he’s had his eye on for months.

He’ll open the box, and his eyes will gleam. It’s exactly what he wanted, and you couldn’t have done it without:

You’ll raise a glass in his honor, and to dads everywhere, like this guy.

Dad cycling 2,100 miles on Father’s Day trek

The following text was originally published by USA Today on June 19, 2015.

Rain, bugs, and heat aren’t deterring one determined dad from cycling over 2,000 miles for a cause: To show what it really means to be a dedicated father.

David Hirsch plans to finish by Sunday — Father’s Day.

“(I’m) a 54-year-old average person just trying to do something,” Hirsch said this week via mobile phone from the saddle as he cycled along Route 66 from Santa Monica, Calif., to Chicago.

Having started June 1, Hirsch gave himself just 21 days to trek the 2,100 miles. He says he wants to call attention to the evolving role that fathers play in their kids’ lives.

“What it takes to be a dad in the 21st century is different than it used to be in the past,” he says. That became the groundwork for the 21st Century Dads Foundation, his non-profit dedicated to raising awareness for and providing support to charities helping dads and their children.

Hirsch says he hopped on his bike to encourage fathers to become more engaged in their child’s lives. He says his ride acts as a symbol of the hard work, commitment and perseverance it takes to be a great dad.

“What we are trying to do is honor dads,” he says. “We’ve honored hundreds and hundreds of dads along the way.”
