The 5th annual advocacy walk is Nov. 15th
SOMERVILLE, NJ– Preparations are under way to make this year’s NJ Walks for TS at Mendham a great success. But they can’t do it alone. The New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome (NJCTS) encourages all walkers and teams to register today.
The 5K walk and family fun run is a day set aside to stand up for acceptance, awareness and advocacy on behalf of children and families affected by Tourette Syndrome (TS) and other neurological disorders, by kids and for kids.
“This event continues to grow thanks to the spirit of walkers, runners and teams who register to step up and take a stand for TS awareness,” said NJCTS Executive Director Faith W. Rice. “It’s a fun day and it wouldn’t be possible without the support and enthusiasm of our participants and sponsors.”
Funds raised by the walk will benefit NJCTS’s School In-Service Program which trains teachers and nurses at schools in every corner of the state, as well as conducting peer trainings and anti-bullying sessions on behalf of New Jersey kids with TS.
The event will take place on Saturday, November 15th at Borough Park, Mountain Ave., Mendham. NJCTS is asking for help in several ways:
- Individual walkers/runners can click here to register now. Early registration helps organizers and guarantees a commemorative T-shirt. (On-site registrants will receive shirts as supplies last)
- Teams are a vital part of this event and can register by clicking here. Team walking/fundraising is a great way to boost the effectiveness of each participant. There’s no limit to the fun of gathering teammates, building a group identity, finding a mascot, etc.
- For those unable to attend the event, sponsoring an individual or team is a meaningful way to show your support for those living with TS.
- Corporate/business sponsors are needed to help present this event.
