Event Overview

Fight for what matters to YOU...WE believe ACCEPTANCE matters.

On June 1, 2024, GiGi’s Playhouse Quad Cities will host the 12th Annual Superhero 5K Run and the 19th Annual Family Walk and Kids’ Dash as part of the national GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge. We will join all GiGi’s locations to spread acceptance for ALL around the globe. You can choose to participate in-person or virtually!

Designed for the entire family, this event has something for people of all ages and abilities. Featuring a timed 5K Competitive Run, a 1-Mile Inspirational Walk, and a Kids’ Dash, this event is one you don’t want to miss!
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. Please consider supporting this important event as a participant, donor, or sponsor.
