TAMPA, Fla. (June 5, 2009) – The Thrivent Financial for Lutherans All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience returns to Pittsburgh for a day of football fun and father and child bonding this Saturday, June 6, from 9 a.m. – noon at the UPMC Sports Performance Complex.

Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin, who will host the event, says, "Being a good father to my children is a top priority. I invite other fathers to commit to their families, and do their best to become All Pro Dads in their children's lives."

New topics and activities will also be introduced this year.
