The Geared Up Dads is a fatherhood initiative in Junction City. According to the president of the organization, Alex Tyson, it was an initiative started through the auspices of the Delivering Change organization.
Tyson said, “They saw the need for a fatherhood group to work in the communities. Our job is basically get information out to fathers that will help provide more stability to the mother. That way her and the child can be healthy.
Members of the Geared Up Dads organization attended the Junction City Blue Jay and Lady Jay basketball games Tuesday night at the Shenk Gym. During an interview on 1420 KJCK, The Talk of JC, Tyson said Geared Up Dads meet on a Wednesday one time per month at the Martha K. Hoover Women’s Health Center at Geary Community Hospital. They usually develop new schedules for upcoming training and events.
