Trey Shannon's Racing For Tourettes
One Lap Closer To A Cure!
Welcome to the donations page for my Racing For Tourettes program. In the three years since starting this program, I have managed to set two Guinness World Records, and with your help raised a great amount of awareness and funds for the TSA. Now that both of those records have been broken, it's time to try and get one of them back. On November 9-10, 2014, I'll be spending 24 hours circling the indoor kart circuit at Victory Lane Karting in Charlotte, NC.

In addition to taking donations here on this page, we are trying something new as well. For this record attempt, we are offering the option to make a per mile pledge. The current record is 424 miles, so that is the mark I'll be trying to break. You can pledge 5 cents per mile, 10 cents per mile, $1 per mile, whatever you'd like. If you're interested in this type of donation format, please contact me directly at trey.shannon@gmail.com or by phone at 540-815-2737. I will need your name, address, phone #, email, and amount you'd like to pledge per mile. After the attempt I will get back in touch with all those who made pledges to let everybody know how many miles I went, and you can come right back to this page to make your tax deductible donation.

TS, an inherited neurobiological disorder, is characterized by involuntary sudden movements and vocalizations, known as tics. 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.

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 activities and other services for people living with TS and their families. Together we can make a difference, so please join me in supporting a very important cause. Any donation, large or small, is massively appreciated. I cannot do this without your support. Now let's go get that record back!

Sincerely,

Trey Shannon
