Thank you to everyone who sponsored, supported, and participated in the 2023 GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge!! We'll see you again next year!

The GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge is both an in-person and virtual event taking place across the country! All GiGi’s Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Centers host their very own Acceptance Challenge, consisting of a fitness-based challenge and fun-filled activities fit for the whole family.

The challenge is simple: join the Buffalo Playhouse at Lincoln Park and partake in a 1-mile inspirational walk, field day activities, and a kids' Dash for Down Syndrome to show your commitment to the inclusion of those with Down syndrome and all unique abilities!

And you can do even more to raise awareness and funds by signing up and inviting your peers to join your team! The funds and awareness you raise will go on to help provide life-changing programs and acceptance initiatives here, at GiGi’s Playhouse. Join in and donate to be a part of the Acceptance Challenge, because every person deserves to be accepted as they are.

The event will be rain or shine from 8:30 to Noon at Lincoln Park in Buffalo/Tonawanda - just a dash away from the Playhouse!
