Event Overview

The GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge is a physical and social MOVEment for acceptance! Our goal is to globally unite 1 million supporters of the Down syndrome community to say "We can and will accept you as you are!"
We are making one simple request to our participants: to get up and MOVE for acceptance! You can walk, run, jump, swim, ride, or play a sport; any type of physical movement can be done to show your support. The best part is anyone can participate! Host your very own event, or attend our 5k, 1 Mile, and Dash event on April 27!

Our Mission

We challenge you to MOVE for ACCEPTANCE

See you in

Your Support Changes Lives
