LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Father’s Day is all about spending quality time with dad.

Sunday, many used the day to attend a picnic at Shelby Park which motivated fathers to strengthen the family.

2 Not 1 Fatherhood is a local organization that promotes the safety and wellbeing of children by getting fathers involved and trying to keep families together.

“It’s an opportunity for fathers to come out and spend quality time with their children in a day in age when society tells me that fathers don’t exist,” President Shawn Gardiner said. “We’re hoping to debunk that myth.

Statistics show when fathers are involved, their children are less likely to get in trouble with the law, drop out of school and have teenage pregnancies.

This is the fifth year the organization hosted the Father’s Day picnic.
