Jacksonville man participates in ‘Dad Bod’ contest that raises funds to fight childhood cancer
JACKSONVILLE, Florida – A man from Jacksonville participates in the search for the best “Dad Bod” in America.
All funds raised are donated to the fight against childhood cancer.
Joe Phelps competed in the National Legendary Dad-Bod competition.
“It doesn’t matter if you have a six pack or a spare tire,” Phelps said. “A daddy is a daddy. “
Originally entering the contest as a joke, Phelps says it’s the game now.
“My father’s body is quite legitimate,” he said. “If you look at me from a certain angle, I look buff. If you look at me from another angle, I will look a little chubby. So it’s everywhere. It is an illusion.
Phelps joins over 100 other men in the national competition.
It’s a chance to earn money while helping a great cause.
All the money raised during the competition is donated to the B + Foundation, which provides financial and emotional support to children battling cancer and their families, while funding research to find a cure.
You can vote for Joe. He currently sits third in his group as the top five pass at the end of the week.
The list will only keep getting shorter as more competitors are added to the pool over the next few weeks.
The person with the most votes wins the contest. They will be selected on November 11.
The winner receives $ 25,000 and a two-page advertisement in Men’s Journal magazine.
Phelps served in the United States Coast Guard for six years.
He says if he wins this contest, he will donate $ 10,000 to charity. One Phelps is considering starting a group to help veterans struggling with depression.
“I believe if you are blessed, bless someone else,” he said.
Phelps hopes his father-bod will lead him to victory.
“I watch like I watch,” he said. “I’m trying to go to the gym to be in better shape, but for now I might as well ride it. I just throw it in there and see what happens.
