Long Island GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge 2023

About Long Island GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge 2023

The GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge is a physical and social movement for ACCEPTANCE.

Thousands from around the world will walk, run, and dash in an epic MOVEment for acceptance.

We, the people of the Down syndrome community, are challenging YOU to move for acceptance – to prove that every person should be accepted for who they are. We live in a world that is often separated based on differences. It is time for people to come together for ACCEPTANCE for all people.

At GiGi’s, our mission is to inspire and empower individuals with Down syndrome to succeed in life but also to spread awareness and acceptance for ALL. Dreams, hopes, and plans for the future are the driving force! We set high expectations and encourage everyone to achieve their “Best of All” in everything they do. There are NO LIMITS to what they can achieve!

Join us, Long Island, as we celebrate all we have to be proud of, connect our community and create a ripple effect of acceptance!

There is something for everyone!
