TEAM TSA Long Beach 2010
One Lap Closer To A Cure!
Welcome to TEAM TSA! Our members run, walk or cycle to benefit more than just their own health. With every step they help the national Tourette Syndrome Association get One Lap Closer To A Cure.

With your tax deductible gift, TSA can continue to fund a world-wide cutting edge research program to discover a cause and find a cure for TS, while providing educational programs, awareness actvities and other services for people living with TS and their families.

TEAM TSA will be running, walking or cycling along the California coastline on Sunday Oct. 17, 2010 in the ICB Long Beach Marathon. As they take in the spectacular oceanfront vistas and seaside communities with approximately 80 percent of the course on or within site of the ocean, they will be making their dreams come true. That dream is to help fund research to find a cure for Tourette Syndrome.

TS, an inherited neurobiological disorder, is characterized by involuntary sudden movements and vocalizations, known as tics. A common misconception is that those affected curse uncontrollably. In fact, less than 10 percent of those affected have what is known as coprolalia. What causes TS is not yet fully understood, and to date, a cure has not been found. It is estimated that one person out of a hundred has a mild form of the disorder and one in one thousand has a severe case of TS.

Please join our mission. Your support can make a difference!
