Are you ready to stand up and walk the walk? Join the “A-Team” – youth advocates for kids with neurological disorders – to promote awareness, acceptance, action and advocacy at a day of fun and empowerment for kids, by kids and about kids.
The 3rd annual Youth Advocate 5K Family Run/Walk, to take place Saturday, November 3, at Borough Park, is being expanded from its previous New Jersey Walks For TS format to an official 5K with timing by CompuScore. Registration is open now, and a reduced rate cost of $22.50 will be available for online registrants through Oct. 31. Registration after Oct. 31 and on the day of the event will be $25.
Joining the “A-Team” at the 5K will serve two very important purposes: supporting children and families with Tourette Syndrome, ADHD, OCD, anxiety disorders, Asperger’s Syndrome and other neurological disorders; and strengthening the statewide education outreach and peer advocacy programs of the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders.
This year’s event also will feature a family picnic immediately following the 5K. Participants should bring a lunch and comfortable chairs, and stay for fun, music and entertainment. Check-in on November 3 begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by warm-ups at 9:30 a.m. and the 5K at 10 a.m.
