Anytime Fitness is proud to announce their first ever 5k event. This 5k will benefit Gigi's Playhouse. GiGi’s Playhouse was created to change the way the world views a Down syndrome diagnosis and send a global message of acceptance for all. In an effort to make the world a more accepting place for individuals of all abilities.

The event will take place on Saturday May 22nd, uniting people in a physical and social MOVEment for Acceptance with a 5K at the Anytime Fitness location in Roscoe, IL.

"We believe in GiGi’s Playhouse and its mission to improve the world through global acceptance for all. That’s why we’re MOVING for the GiGiFIT Acceptance Challenge! Please help us support GiGi’s mission by donating to our team page, joining our team and by sharing their mission to unite the world through acceptance." - Brent Potter/Managing Director & Owner Anytime Fitness

So many people struggle every day to merely be accepted. GiGi’s has a vision of a world that is accepting of all people, regardless of diagnosis, race or sexual orientation. All our differences, all our “otherness" and all our unique abilities will be accepted and encouraged. That’s what we’re all really working toward. At GiGi’s they call this “Generation G,” the pledge to be more accepting, generous and kind. Every movement you make, and every dollar you raise, helps us in moving the world in a more accepting direction! Now let's get movin’!

To register for the 5K, you can join the Anytime Fitness Team or get your friends and family together to create one of your own. You can do so by CLICKING HERE.
