#148 – Alonzo Mourning

The Life of Dad Show - Episode 148 - Alonzo Mourning

This week, Tommy Riles and Art Eddy talk about how Stouffer’s Fit Kitchen meals are the new wingmen for dads on the go! They then debate who is better — Michael Jordan or LeBron James. They also talk about the NBA Finals match-up between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors.

Then they bring on special guest NBA great Alonzo Mourning to talk fatherhood.

How do you show real strength? Alonzo Mourning feels that strength comes through care. It comes through nurturing. It comes from uplifting someone. It comes through leadership. It comes through in so many ways.

Alonzo and his wife, Tracy, showed another way of caring by setting up the Mourning Family Foundation. They look to inspire others through advocacy, education, and enrichment services and allows donors with varied interests in children’s issues the benefit of giving to several charities from their one contribution. Since 1997, Mourning Family Foundation has raised over $20 million for various programs that aid in the development of children and their families, particularly those in socioeconomically challenged communities.

Thanks to Dove Men+Care, Art was able to talk with Alonzo Mourning about how he shows real strength. From playing with his children to devoting time giving back to his community, the moments that have strengthened and shaped him were featured on DoveMenCare.com
