GiGi’s Playhouse in Fargo is one of 51 Down Syndrome Achievement Centers in the United States and Mexico providing educational enrichment opportunities for individuals of all ages with Down syndrome.
GiGi’s Playhouse Fargo annual Walk & Fest will be hosting a kick-off to the GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge for individuals with Down syndrome and immediate family only (up to 5 people) on Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 10:00 am. All families must be pre-registered to attend the kick-off event. After the kick-off event we encourage your team to get together and walk for ACCEPTANCE at a location of your choice! The kick-off event will be livestreamed on social media platforms.
Our goal is to unite one million supporters in honor of the incredible Down syndrome community and encourage everyone to say, “We can and will accept you as you are!” Discrimination of differences continues today despite our best efforts. Our work is not done.
MOVE for your health and MOVE for global acceptance for all on June 5, 2021! You can walk, run, lift, play, swim – whatever you choose – just get out and MOVE!
We invite you to join GiGi’s Playhouse Fargo as a participant, donor, or sponsor for this physical and social MOVEment for acceptance! Together we are changing the way the world views Down syndrome by creating a more accepting, generous, and kind community!
The GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge is a physical and social movement for acceptance!
We live in a world where people constantly judge and discriminate against one another. This event challenges people to actively move for the change that we so desperately need! Any type of physical movement can be used as your pledge to help in creating a more accepting world. You can walk, run, jump, swim, ride, lift, play a sport, go to the gym, and more! You can register to participate in any of the GiGi’s Playhouse organized events, or you can register your own event in support of any of our Playhouse locations!
In an effort to make the world a more accepting place for individuals of all abilities, on June 5th, GiGi’s Playhouse is aiming to unite 1 Million supporters in a physical and social MOVEment for Acceptance! Are you up for the challenge?
