You’re invited to participate in the GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge June 5, 2021!
Join us, and one million of our closest friends, as we make a physical and social MOVEment for Acceptance!

OUR GOAL

Last year, our community stepped up and knocked it out of the park, raising nearly $80,000 to change the way the world sees Down syndrome.

OUR GOAL THIS YEAR IS $100,000!

Rockford is one of the smallest markets in the Playhouse network, but we proved that we have heart. Let’s show the world what we can do by uniting with 50 Playhouses and One Million supporters world-wide in a physical and social MOVEment for Acceptance!

What's the Challenge?

To MOVE for your health and MOVE for global acceptance! You can walk, run, lift, play sports, swim, whatever!  WE challenge ONE MILLION people to collectively participate in a physical and social movement for acceptance to prove that everyone is accepted for who they are.

Why the Challenge?

We live in a world that is often separated based on differences. It is time for people to come together regardless of race, gender, diagnosis, sexual preference, or religion. We need universal ACCEPTANCE for all people. This is why WE, the people of the Down syndrome community, are challenging YOU to move for acceptance – to prove that every person should be accepted for who they are.

Join the Challenge

Last year, you helped us take over 1 billion steps for acceptance! That’s enough to go to the moon and back – twice! TOGETHER we can accomplish even more! This year we are asking you to MOVE for Acceptance and ask others to join you! Join individually or create a team! The more people that commit to MOVE, the more we will be able to MOVE the world towards global acceptance for all.
