2020 brought us (and everyone else) a unusual year but we have overcome and improvised along the way. The annual Superhero Run, Walk and Dash for Down syndrome was no different. We chose to move forward with an unusual superhero and an unusual format. How do you hold a run virtually? Well we did it! We did it with your help! 

Over 500 people registered to participate and many of you walked, ran, and dashed in their own neighborhoods and communities! Thank you for believing in us and our participants enough to move forward with us in this unusual way. This year was different and that’s ok because it is special in its own way. It was inspiring and moving to see all the photos and videos on social media.  

Together we had representation is multiple states, cities, and communities. Together we raised over $66,000 to help ensure that GiGi’s is able to continue offering free educational and therapeutic programs for participants of all ages.  

The good news is we don’t have to wait an entire year to do it again! In 2021, this event will be incorporated into the National GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge on June 5, 2021.  

We hope to keep the same theme and feel along with high hopes of being able to hold the event in-person. Please stay tuned as we share additional information as it become available.  

Thank you again for making 2020 the best that it could be, and we’ll see you in 2021!
