FIELD-DAY-Header-950x360-(1)-(1)

The Fox Valley Field Day is a throwback to grade school, built with ACCEPTANCE in mind. We've got all the classic events like tug of war, relay races, obstacle courses, etc. - plus some crazy new games and some surprises throughout the day. Teams will earn points in each event to add up to your total for the day.

Will your team have what it takes to take home the King of the Field title? Grab some friends, start your team, and gear up for the competition of the Summer!!!

Prizes will be awarded for the following:

  1. King of the Field- The team with the most points at the end of the day will take home the King of the Field title and trophy along with gold medals and some GiGi's swag.
  2. Team Spirit- The team that is the most spirited with the best decorated shirt/costumes will receive the Team Spirit award! This award will be given to the team voted most spirited by the event volunteers and staff.
  3. Fundraising Champion- The team that collectively raises the most money for GiGi's Playhouse Fox Valley will officially be recognized.

The Field Day will be IN-PERSON outside of GiGi's Playhouse Fox Valley in the parking lot and also the grassy lot next to My Gym. There will be a virtual option to participate.

Registration:

$21 for adults with t-shirts
$10 for adults without t-shirts
$10 for child with t-shirts
$5 for child without a t-shirt

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 preference, 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.
