Youth Advocate Tommy Licato has done a lot of awareness work on behalf of the Tourette Syndrome community for years now — and he’s still in high school. Tommy’s incredible efforts on behalf of the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) once again have yielded an opportunity for people to show their support for TS.
This time, Tommy has teamed up with Mr. Subs of South Plainfield to host a benefit fundraiser on Wednesday, November 5. From 4-8 p.m. that day, 15 percent of all proceeds at Mr. Subs will go toward the 5th annual NJ Walks for TS at Mendham, which supports the NJCTS School In-Service Program.
The School In-Service program educates students and teachers at schools in every corner of New Jersey about Tourette Syndrome, anti-bullying and self-advocacy. Tommy has been attending the walk for years and hopes that you will, too! But if you can’t, this fundraiser is a great way to take part. Or you can donate to the cause.
Mr. Subs is at 100 South Plainfield Avenue in South Plainfield. Hope to see you there on November 5!
