VIRTUAL NJ Walks for TS
To meet the needs of our on-the-go families and to ensure the greatest impact, NJCTS expanded NJ Walks for TS to encompass the entire state throughout the spring.
The NJ Walks for TS Virtual Walk will allow your family and friends to show support wherever you choose anytime in March, April or May. And be sure to wear your t-shirts and send us your pictures so we can spread the Walk message on our social media channels. We will also share those pictures with the Governor, Commissioner of Education, Commissioner of Health and others as part of TS Awareness Day in June to introduce them to the faces of the 1 in 100 kids and families living with Tourette Syndrome across our state.
Register as a Walk Team Captain << Click on this link and choose CREATE MY OWN FUNDRAISING PAGE. Registered captains will receive a 2020 NJ Walks for TS t-shirt when they donate or fundraise $25. Recruit your friends and family to join your walk (or whatever activity you choose) and ask them to support your walk by making a donation. Teammates who wish to purchase a shirt, may do so by using the link or form below. Their $25 will be added to your final fundraising total. Register by March 1 to get your team name on the back of the shirt!!
Once you have registered your team, you will have your very own fundraising page! You can update your page with your story and photo. Then send the link to family and friends asking for their support.

OUR TOP FUNDRAISING TEAMS WILL BE INVITED TO THE NEW JERSEY STATE HOUSE FOR A VERY SPECIAL EVENT IN JUNE!
NJ Walks for TS promotes awareness, acceptance, action, and advocacy of Tourette Syndrome and its associated disorders. This event is about fun and empowerment for kids, by kids, and about kids. It is a chance to stand up and step out to break the stigma attached to TS and show your support for our friends, family, and neighbors living with this misunderstood neurological disorder. All funds raised support our various programs including education outreach, scholarships and awareness.
