The event will take place Sunday, April 3rd to benefit education programs
WEST WINDSOR, NJ – Fresh air, great music, and the chance to win a night on the town—all in the name of empowering kids. NJ Walks for TS at Princeton will take place Sunday, April 3rd at 1 p.m. at Mercer County Park West Picnic Area in West Windsor.
The event is a 5K walk/family fun run to benefit the Education Outreach Programs of the NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome and Associated Disorders (NJCTS). NJ Walks for TS was founded for kids, by kids, to benefit the 20,000 New Jersey children and families living with TS—a neurological disorder characterized by involuntary sounds and movements known as tics.
The youth co-chairs behind this event—Tess and Paige Kowalski of Plainsboro, Hallie Hoffman of Belle Mead, and Ally Abad of North Brunswick—have been working hard to invite the public to attend as well as reaching out to the local business community for support.
The day will include music and games from NJ 101.5 FM, a performance from the award-winning Princeton Area Homeschool Choir, and delicious treats from The Corner Bakery at Princeton Marketfair and Wegmans. A 50/50 raffle will take place and adult attendees can bid on silent auction items including theatre tickets, fine art, a month’s membership to Pinncacle Parcour, and restaurant gift certificates to Harvest Moon and Rocky Hill Inn.
Walkers and runners of all ages and abilities are welcome to register online at www.njcts.org. Pre-registration is preferred, but not required. On-site registration and check-in begins at 1 p.m.
The NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome would like to thank the following sponsors: Horizon Services, Advanced Dental Arts, Ipsos, and Salt Creek Grille.
