NJ Walks for TS at Mendham benefits the NJCTS Education Outreach Program, which educates students and teachers at schools in every corner of New Jersey about Tourette Syndrome, antibullying and self-advocacy. Each member of the Honorary Committee has a history of support for the 1 in 100 children living with Tourette Syndrome (TS)- a neurological disorder characterized by uncontrollable movements or sounds known as tics.

Since its inception, NJ Walks for TS has emerged as a day of celebration and inspiration for kids, by kids.

“We are grateful for the support of these legislators- who represent thousands of children and families living with Tourette Syndrome in Northern and Central New Jersey,” said NJCTS Executive Director Faith W. Rice, “We hope they will inspire others to step up and step out on November 15th.”
