Join GiGi's Playhouse Detroit for a socially distanced event at Seaholm High School Track on June 5 or join us virtually from the comfort of your favorite park, trail, or neighborhood.

We challenge YOU to MOVE for acceptance!

You're invited to participate in the GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge June 5, 2021!
Join us, and one million of our closest friends, as we make a physical and social MOVEment for acceptance!

Our Goal

In an effort to make the world a more accepting place for individuals of all abilities, on June 5th, GiGi’s Playhouse Detroit is teaming up with Playhouses across the country and in Mexico to unite 1 Million supporters in a physical and social MOVEment for Acceptance! Are you up for the challenge??

What's the Challenge?

To MOVE for your health and MOVE for global acceptance! You can walk, run, lift, play sports, swim, whatever!  WE challenge ONE MILLION people to collectively participate in a physical and social movement for acceptance to prove that everyone is accepted for who they are.

Why the Challenge?

We live in a world that is often separated based on differences. It is time for people to come together regardless of race, gender, diagnosis, sexual orientation, or religion. We need universal ACCEPTANCE for all people. This is why 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.

Join the Challenge

Last year, you helped us take over 1 billion steps for acceptance! That’s enough to go to the moon and back – twice! TOGETHER we can accomplish even more! This year we are asking you to MOVE for Acceptance and ask others to join you! Join individually or create a team! The more people that commit to MOVE, the more we will be able to MOVE the world towards global acceptance for all.
