Registration open for GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge


Registration is open for the GiGiFit Acceptance Challenge hosted by GiGi’s Playhouse Rochester, a nonprofit Down syndrome achievement center, on June 5. 

Participants can move independently from any location virtually or in-person at Rochester Challenger Miracle Field, 1000 Ridge Road, Webster, from 1 to 3 p.m. for a celebration of movement. GiGi's has a goal to raise $10,000 at this year's Challenge.

Over 1 billion steps, the equivalent of two round trips to the moon, were completed across the GiGi's Playhouse network in 2020.

All CDC and state outdoor event guidelines will be in place for the field day event. Activities include parachute, corn hole, softball, yoga ball and face painting. Carrie Bergeron will autograph copies of her book, “Tommy: The Special Tomato.” Food, drinks and snacks will be available for cash or credit.
