Join us at Ramapo’s historic arch for this youth-initiated, youth-led, statewide fundraising and awareness effort. This event – the brainchild of Ramapo College senior AnnaKatharine Miehe, whose brother has Tourette Syndrome – aims to promote acceptance and understanding of TS and the 1 in 100 kids living with the misunderstood, misdiagnosed neurological disorder.
"Planning an event for the NJ Center for TS has been a wonderful opportunity and one that I will always cherish,” said Miehe, who has taken on this event as her senior project. “Having witnessed TS first hand, I understand the hardships people with TS go through on a daily basis and the importance of creating awareness and educating people on the disorder. I look forward to seeing people come together at NJ Walks for TS at Ramapo College in hopes of making a positive difference for those with TS."
The walk will take place rain or shine April 14, with registration beginning at 1 p.m. and the walk commencing at 2 p.m. The cost is $10 for CURRENT Ramapo College students and $22.50 for the general public. Please note that the $10 is for current Ramapo students only and does NOT include Ramapo faculty. Also, NJCTS cannot offer any refunds on registration submissions.
All proceeds from this event will support the statewide education outreach and peer advocacy efforts of NJCTS.
