GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Father’s Day is still a couple of weeks away, but five dads in West Michigan are being honored for their commitment to health and stopping diabetes.

The American Diabetes Association’s recipients of this year’s “Father of the Year” awards are: Rick Baker, Henry Emrich, Robert Kaminski Jr., Ron Kitchens, and Bruce Matthews. They were chosen based on their ability to balance their personal and professional lives and serve as a role model by making a positive difference in their communities.

The 2013 “Father of the year Awards Ceremony” dinner will be held on June 6 starting at 7 p.m. at the JW Marriott in Grand Rapids. All proceeds from the event will support the American Diabetes Association.
