“We appreciate each of these organizations for their generosity in support of New Jersey’s kids, and their contributions will go a long way toward achieving the Youth Advocate 5K Family Run/Walk’s goals,” NJCTS Executive Director Faith W. Rice said. “Each of these organizations is dedicated toward walking the walk and standing up to help the 1 in 100 kids with Tourette Syndrome and other neurological disorders, and for that we thank them.”
