State Senator Christopher “Kip” Bateman (R-16) and Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli (R-16) have joined the Honorary Committee for the 4th annual NJ Walks for TS at Princeton. The 5K walk/family fun run will take place at Mercer County Park on Sunday, April 2nd and is designed as a day of advocacy, awareness, and acceptance.
Proceeds from NJ Walks for TS at Princeton will benefit the education outreach programs of the NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome (NJCTS), which educates students and teachers at schools in every corner of New Jersey about Tourette Syndrome (TS), preventing bullying, and self-advocacy. Members of the Honorary Committee have a history of supporting the 1 in 100 children living with TS.
Tourette Syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by involuntary movements or sounds known as tics.
“We are grateful for Senator Bateman and Assemblyman Ciattarelli’s continued support of this event and the work that we do,” said NJCTS Executive Director Faith W. Rice.
