Their mission & purpose is to change the way the world views Down syndrome, and to send a global message of acceptance for all. They strive to see a world where individuals with Down syndrome are accepted and embraced in their families, schools and communities. They change lives through consistent delivery of free educational, therapeutic-based and career development programs for individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community, through a replicable playhouse model.


Individuals will be given the opportunity to rappel 16 stories down the Hyatt House – Center City Building. Every day, children and adults with Down syndrome face many different obstacles. This rappel offers us the chance to conquer those fears and overcome obstacles together. All proceeds will go towards providing a wide variety of FREE educational, theraputic and social programs. With your support, more individuals will learn how to read, improve their health and wellness, develop career skills, and live truly beautiful lives. More communities will embrace individuals with Down syndrome as equals and friends. Miracles happen at GiGi's Playhouse, where we turn belief into achievement!
