A Call to Action
The next time you are suffering through the pain of an early morning F3 workout, take a look around at your fellow brothers. Even if you don’t know each man in the Circle of Trust, you are hyper aware that there is something different about the men of F3. We are leaders and we get things done. We are compassionate and care about our health, our families and our community. We are intellectual men of faith that seek out others that share our view of how life should be lived. Simply put, we are Men of Action and the time for action is now.
This Call to Action starts with F3 Foundation (“F3F”). Communities are starving for leaders and mentors and F3 is standing up and leading the charge. Each F3 member is an impressive individual. As a collective group, we are an undeniable force with the ability to influence and inspire. F3F is the natural progression for F3 Nation and we have jumped into the deep end of the pool head first.
The mission of F3F is to leverage the men of F3 Nation to develop and strengthen male leadership in our communities.
F3F is the platform to engage and support F3 members in causes that target our mission. F3F is here to serve the members of F3 and tap into their time, talent, and resources to make a real difference. The time for action is now.
There are two components of F3F – Service and Philanthropy. Let’s take a closer look at each one.
Guys initially post at a F3 workout for the exercise but they ultimately end up staying for the fellowship. Men of all ages are creating bonds through the difficult workouts and these relationships are the special sauce for the success of F3 Foundation. The end result is a new found sense of trust, commitment and accountability which bring out the best in men. What happens when our members engage in one of our service projects with this basis of trust, commitment and accountability? We do what we say we will do, we see things through to the end and we get things done.
There are people within F3 that have a passion for a certain cause or organization. F3F wants to help you. If you are involved in an endeavor that develops and strengthens male leadership in your community, we want to talk to you. F3F provides you the platform to engage the men of F3 Nation that share your passion. F3F is the forum to promote your cause while delivering organizational support to ensure your success.
If you are reading this and getting fired up envisioning endless ways to get involved, F3F wants to hear from you. We are organizing a volunteer army full of F3 Men of Action and if you have a passion that embodies the F3F mission, we encourage you to jump on board. The time for action is now.
