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, a Youth Advocate trained by NJCTS.

"This event was founded for kids, by kids and we are proud to partner with elected officials throughout our area to spread support for the thousands of kids and families living with TS in New Jersey today," said NJCTS Executive Director Faith W. Rice.
