THE STORY:

Carrielyn Bertino wrote -

Why we are doing this:

As many of you know our amazing little guy Charlie was born with Down Syndrome. When doing our research we found that an incredible organization called GiGi's Playhouse was in the works for Rochester. Instantly, we thought how lucky we are to find such an incredible place to become a part of as our journey with Charlie is just beginning. GiGi's is a one of a kind achievement center for individuals with Down Syndrome, their families and the community. Their vision is to see a world where individuals with Down Syndrome are accepted and embraced in their families, schools and community.

Check out their website: gigisplayhouse.org/rochester

So please consider joining us for the walk/ run on October 1st, donating, or checking back often just to see how GiGi's is coming along.   Team Gigi's is going to rock!!

 

HOW TO DONATE:

You can simply click "DONATE" on this page and also give yourself a big hug and a high-five for helping support an incredible organization that will directly service and improve lives here in Rochester. 

If you wanted to raise funds yourself for GiGi's click "join team" and ask a friend or two to check in their couch cushions.

 

HOW TO JOIN THE RACE AS A WAlKER OR RUNNER:

If you wanted to physically walk or run with us on October 1st, please sign up at the race link below. Your registration fee takes care of your race participation and supports the George Eastman House directly.  This race is unique because it supports George Eastman's House however, to honor his philanthropic nature, participants of the race can raise funds for their favorite organizations.  This is how Team GiGi's was born!

While registering, say "no thanks" to the t-shirts section of the registration- we will have team t-shirts for you. Please make sure you have contacted me with size information by Sunday, September 25th!

Also, as the race approaches I will send out information as to where our team will meet and how you can get your t-shirts etc.... We will have a team GiGi's tent on the grounds of the Eastman house as a central meeting spot.
