We challenge YOU
In an effort to make the world a more accepting place for individuals of all abilities GiGi’s Playhouse is kicking off a campaign to unite 1 Million supporters for acceptance.
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.
Together we can MOVE the world in a more accepting direction
How to Participate:
GiGi's Changes Lives
“There’s something special about Sarah Jane’s comfort level when she is with her GiGi’s crew.”
~Kathryn, Sarah Jane’s mom
“Time flies when you’re having fun, and that’s what the Playhouse is. Everyone genuinely cares about each other, and we have a great time together.”
~Alyse, Conner’s mom
GiGi’s has provided an extra layer of support locally that many national organizations can not replicate. GiGi’s is a place where the whole family is welcomed and encouraged to participate. That has been great because our whole family can interact with Cree’s learning and development.
