TEAM TSA National Awareness Walk/Run 2013
One Lap Closer To A Cure!
Welcome to TEAM TSA! Our members get fit running, walking or cycling while helping 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.

On June 23, 2013, team members will be walking in the TEAM TSA National Awareness Walk in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, once famous for hosting the World's Fair, to raise awareness and funds to support local and national programs.

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!
