Lucas is one of our awesome volunteers at GiGi’s. He is currently a literacy tutor and he and his brother, Maddox (who rocks something extra), did an amazing job as the keynote speakers at our 2018 “I Have a Voice” Gala & Auction! Yesterday, Lucas and our Site Manager, Janea, presented at Ensworth School’s service learning fair. They did an activity to demonstrate what it can feel like to have hypotonia (low muscle tone) as an individual with Down syndrome. Have you ever tried talking with a marshmallow in your mouth or tying your shoes with oven mitts on your hands? It sure makes you appreciate the extra work our friends do to accomplish their goals! 👏 Thank you, Lucas, for believing and our mission and always spreading the message of #GenerationG to be accepting, generous, and kind! 💙💛 #GiGisBelieves #GiGisStrong #GiGisPlayhouseNSH
