About San Diego Donut Run 2019

Join us for the second annual San Diego Donut Run!  Not sure you want to run/walk in the 5K?  Donut worry!  You can sign up for our 1-mile Donut Dash and for those who can’t make it that day, you can still be part of the fun by registering as a virtual runner.  We will also have a Kids’ Dash where the little ones make their way to their own finish line to receive their medal.  When you register, you will automatically be assigned a page so you can share it with your network to help raise funds for GiGi’s Playhouse San Diego.  We will be awarding amazing prizes for Best Costume, Most Team Spirit, and Most Funds Raised. 

Every team that raises $321 by May 1st will get their child’s picture placed along the 5K Route


Time to dust off those tutus and baker hats!  Sign up today!

Gigi's Playhouse San Diego

Why Participate?

GiGi’s Playhouse has made it to the West Coast! Opening in April 2018, GiGi’s Playhouse San Diego has had an amazing first year. With over 1,000 participant check-ins totaling over 2,000 hours GiGi’s Playhouse has found a home in San Diego and impacted so many already. We had a successful Donut Run and are excited to bring it back for its second year! We also have been able to start offering purposeful programs for every age group! We are overwhelmed with gratitude from the support of our community, generous donors, and all the GiGi’s Playhouses across the network. We are so excited to continue to change the way the world views Down syndrome in 2019 with your help! 

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Through free programs and through our Generation G Campaign for global acceptance, we EMPOWER families by maximizing opportunities for daily achievement and lasting acceptance. To ensure lasting acceptance, we must show the world what individuals with Down syndrome are truly capable of achieving as students, co-workers, volunteers, friends, and valued members of their communities. Our program outcomes help advance this vital social impact goal.
