We know not everyone is ready to attend a large event in person, so we encourage you to set up a team and do a smaller event with your friends, family, or within your community. 

Your participation and support will not only help build awareness and acceptance, but it will also help fund programs like GiGiFIT, LMNOP, Fantastic Friends, 1-on-1 Tutoring and Speech, and more!
