On June 4, 2022, GiGi’s Playhouse Quad Cities hosted their 10th Annual Superhero 5K Run and the 18th Annual Family Walk and Kids’ Dash as part of the national GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge. They joined other GiGi’s locations in spreading acceptance for ALL around the globe.  

Thank you to everyone that supported by registering to attend, donating, or helping to spread the message. We are honored and blessed to have your support! With the help of 44 fundraising teams (families & volunteers), 730+ participants, 50+ volunteers, and event sponsors we raised over $90,000.  

Funds raised stay here in the Quad Cities and ensure that GiGi’s Playhouse Quad Cities is able to continue offering free purposeful programs for individuals with Down syndrome and their families. You can see more about the programs being offered here.  

At GiGi’s, our mission is to inspire and empower individuals with Down syndrome to succeed in life but also to spread awareness and acceptance for ALL. Dreams, hopes, and plans for the future are the driving force! We set high expectations and encourage everyone to achieve their “Best of All” in everything they do.  There are NO LIMITS to what they can achieve! 

SAVE THE DATE for next year! Saturday, June 3, 2023
