NJCTS, Ramapo College, TS community pumped up to walk on April 14

Now is a great time to join them and register for the NJ Walks For TS at Ramapo College, an awareness and fundraising event.

MAHWAH – The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) is ready. Students and volunteers from Ramapo College of New Jersey are ready. And many from the Garden State’s vast TS community are ready. The question is … are you ready?

One of the premier North Jersey awareness events of the year, NJ Walks For TS at Ramapo College, is right around the corner – so don’t miss out on the opportunity to join the many students, families, individuals and organizations from across New Jersey in walking and fostering awareness for Tourette Syndrome.

On Sunday, April 14, walkers of all ages, shapes and sizes will converge upon Ramapo’s historic Arch in the center of campus for the walk, the proceeds from which will benefit NJCTS’ statewide education outreach and peer advocacy efforts that support the 1 in 100 children and adults are affected by the misunderstood, misdiagnosed neurological disorder.

Registration for the event will begin at 1 p.m. on April 14, with the walk commencing at 2 p.m. The cost is $10 for current Ramapo College students only (must show college ID and/or have a valid Ramapo e-mail address; not applicable for Ramapo faculty or former students) and $22.50 for the general public. A pilot program for high school and middle school students wishing to participate as a team at a reduced cost as part of a fundraising initiative also is available.
