GiGi’s Playhouse Down Syndrome Achievement Center’s mission is to change the way the world views Down syndrome through national campaigns, educational programs, and by empowering individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community. We offer free therapeutic and educational programming to individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
We are honored to receive the Greater Good award and will be using the $1,000 to go toward our upcoming 5K, Cody’s Dash for Down Syndrome, on June 16 at Central Park in Hopkins. The money raised at the event will help us to continue to be able to offer free programming to individuals with Down Syndrome and their families. We have served over 600 families in the Twin Cities but want to reach many more in the coming years! ~Kristen Sweet, Site Director at Gigi’s Playhouse Twin Cities
