THE STORY:

Nicole & JJ wrote -

May 15- June 15 is Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month. Please join us along with others in our community and walk to raise awareness for Tourette Syndrome on May 20, 2012

SO LET"S TIC TALK:

Jamison and I are very excited to attend our first walk with the TSA on May 20th....and in NY!

Please consider joining us!  We are trying to get our own sub "team" together.  If you/anyone you know are interested in walking WITH us, please let me know

We are excited to be participating during Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month and hope to spread as much awareness and understanding as possible about TS. 

This could not come at a better time for us as JJ is beginning to question himself and his diagnosis.  The more people we can touch and inform the better.

We hope this walk will bring friends, old and new, together for a great cause! 

JJ and I will be updating as frequently as we can with the progress of our "team"

you can register direct or contact me and we will add you to our "team"  (name to be determined)

All donations made on Crowdrise will go directly to the TSA and/or towards registration feels, etc. I am trying to work with the TSA on this one.  Feel free to send all donations direct as we are not asking for duplicates. 

Please email if you wish to send direct for us to bring the day of the walk

If just one of our friends can each share our page, that is enough for us! I have gift/donation pamphlets/mailers and flyers if anyone is interested in posting for us.

I am not sure if anyone's schools, gyms, or other business are interested, but I also have a ton of literature and informative information, ID Cards and other such things if anyone is interested in handing out or displaying for us.  Please let me know and I will send the mailings to you!

We are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces on Walk Day and even more excited to seeing faces to those who we only know as "avatars"

Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!

XOXO Nicole and JJ
