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

Over the past three years, #RowforaReason has raised over $40,000 for GiGi's Playhouse - Nashville and, in 2018, we are incredibly honored and grateful to be the “Reason” for this amazing event for the FOURTH year in a row! #CrossFitters and other athletes from all over the country come together to row an individual half marathon or 4-person team half or full marathon…all to support GiGi’s. We're excited for several of our GiGi's adult participants to compete on teams as well! 💙💛 DOES YOUR FAMILY BENEFIT FROM GIGI'S?! Row For A Reason 2018 is an uplifting, fun, and generous community event and we would LOVE to see GiGi’s participants and their families come out to show their gratitude and support for these amazing and generous athletes! It is because of events like Row for a Reason that GiGi’s is able to continue to keep our #PurposefulProgramming FREE for families. WHEN: Saturday, April 7 from 9:00am-1:00pm • Rowing will be from approximately 10:00am-12:00pm, but you can drop in to show support at any time! WHERE: CrossFit East Nashville: 400 Davidson Street, Suite 410, Nashville, TN 37213 • The event will be INDOORS, so you don't have to worry about the weather forecast! ☔🌨️ Can't make it in person on Saturday...? Leave a photo of your loved one with Down syndrome in the comments to say THANK YOU! Let's show the athletes WHY they are rowing! And if you would like to make a donation in honor of the event, please visit the event registration page (bit.ly/rfar2018), click “Register Now,” select “Donation or Merch Only” from the “Division” category, and then specify your donation amount under “Additional Donations.” If you are a teen or adult with Down syndrome who has previously participated in the GiGi’s Playhouse Nashville + CrossFit program and you would like more information about being placed on a rowing team at tomorrow's event, please email Kate at kharris@gigisplayhouse.org as soon as possible.
