3rd annual Youth Advocate 5K Family Run/Walk
Start: Saturday, November 3, 2012 @ 8:30 AM (EDT)
Mendham , NJ 07945
An official 5K family run/walk with timing by CompuScore to support the statewide education outreach and peer advocacy programs of the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders
Please stand up and walk the walk by joining the "A-Team" -- youth advocates for kids with neurological disorders -- to promote awareness, acceptance, action and advocacy at a day of fun and empowerment for kids, by kids and about kids.
Our third annual 5K family run/walk at Borough Park in Mendham is being expanded from its previous New Jersey Walks For TS format to an official 5K with timing by CompuScore. The event will strengthen the statewide education outreach and peer advocacy programs of the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders and will feature a family picnic immediately following the event! Bring your lunch and comfortable chairs! Stay for fun, music and entertainment!
Most importantly, join us as we walk to support children and families with TS, ADHD, OCD, anxiety disorders, Asperger's Syndrome and other neurological disorders. Make November 3, 2012, the day you join the A-Team, walk the walk and stand up alongside youth advocates for kids with neurological disorders! It doesn't matter what makes us different when we focus on what makes us strong.
