Kowabunga – Thank YOU!

Kowabunga Dudes & Dudettes!

You ran, walked, dashed, donated, and volunteered and we thank YOU! The virtual support was “gnarly” and “radical” as the turtles would say. Seeing all of your photos and videos on all the social media platforms filled our shells with pride. Your support of our friends with Down syndrome and the free educational and therapeutic programs GiGi’s provides is inspiring! With many of our programs being held virtually and providing at-home kits for those programs, we’ve seen expenses that were not budgeted for. Your help and support ensures that we are able to continue providing programs even during this difficult year.

Check out the highlights video with all the photos and videos from the big day!

2020 Superhero Shirt

Social media was a sea of green on October 3rd! It was amazing to see everyone out and about showing their support.

Just a reminder that shirts for those registered between 9/16 and 10/5 will be available soon. We will contact you for delivery and/or pick-up details once they arrive.

$66,000+ Raised!

Thanks to 35 fundraising teams and all of you, the 2020 fundraising goal was not only achieved but it was exceeded! Thank you all so much for continuing to support during this unusual year! We truly appreciate it!
