See you in 2025!

Event Overview

Our 2024 World Down Syndrome Day Celebration and GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge is on Saturday, March 23, 2024, at The Long Acres Ranch in Richmond, TX, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge (also known as GFAC) exists to spread awareness, acceptance, and inclusion for individuals with Down syndrome, and to help raise needed funds to continue our 100% educational and therapeutic services. GFAC is a peer-to-peer fundraiser where participants from our Playhouse and their families will build a team to come and walk at the event. In addition to these fundraising efforts from our Playhouse families, we have the sponsorship opportunities listed below.

This year, we celebrate WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY (3/21) on (3/23/2024) at the event by bringing in food trucks, inflatables, music, and more! Please contact Hannah Harrison, Executive Director, with any questions or custom sponsorship opportunities. Email:
