Event Overview

It is time once again to MOVE for acceptance. Our family favorite event each year is coming back BIGGER and BETTER than ever! This year we MOVE in our 5K run, 1-Mile Inspiration Walk, and Dash for Down syndrome along with our favorite field day games and FOAM machine! Join together as our community celebrates ACCEPTANCE FOR ALL!

NEW THIS YEAR we have our friends at Phase Three Brewing providing a hard-earned beer at the end of the race!

Each year we are blown away by the incredible support of our families and friends who make this our largest fundraiser each year and make Deerfield one of the top fundraising playhouses across the country! We can't wait to show everyone what we can do this year! Run for fun, run for a refreshing cold beer, run for your loved ones and friends, run for acceptance for all.

With our friends at GiGi's Playhouse Deerfield we will gather at Paulus Park on June 15th and be a part of making change happen! Register today!
