Thank you to all our GiGi’s Playhouse Fox Valley charity partner runners and the generosity of our donors for Naperville Half Marathon and 5k. Each GiGi’s Playhouse runner agrees to raise a minimum of $200 to help support the FREE education and therapeutic programming offered at GiGi’s Playhouse Fox Valley.
