Somerville, NJ, March 17, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- State Senator Linda Greenstein and Assemblymen Daniel Benson and Wayne DeAngelo (D-14) have joined the Honorary Committee for NJ Walks for TS at Princeton- a day of advocacy, awareness and acceptance. The 5K walk and family fun run will take place at Mercer County Park on Sunday, March 29th.
NJ Walks for TS at Princeton benefits the NJCTS Education Outreach Program, which educates students and teachers at schools in every corner of New Jersey about Tourette Syndrome, anti-bullying and self-advocacy. Each member of the Honorary Committee has a history of support for the 1 in 100 children living with Tourette Syndrome (TS)- a neurological disorder characterized by uncontrollable movements or sounds known as tics.
NJ Walks for TS began in Mendham in 2010 and was brought to Central Jersey by Plainsboro teen Tess Kowalski, an NJCTS Youth Advocate.
"This event was founded for kids, by kids and we are grateful for the continued support of NJ Walks by the District 14 legislators," said NJCTS Executive Director Faith W. Rice, "We hope they will inspire others to step out in support of the thousands of kids and families living with TS in New Jersey today."
