Congressman Sires Returns to the Honorary Committee for the 6th Annual NJ Walks for TS at Mendham


The event will take place Saturday, Nov. 14th to benefit education programs.

Somerville, NJ, November 13, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Congressman Albio Sires (D-8) continues his support for New Jersey Walks for TS by joining this year's Honorary Committee. The sixth annual NJ Walks for TS at Mendham Borough Park will take place this Saturday, Nov. 14th. The 5K walk/run is a day of advocacy, awareness, acceptance and action on behalf of the Tourette Syndrome (TS) community.

NJ Walks for TS at Mendham benefits the NJCTS Education Outreach Program, which educates students and teachers at schools in every corner of the state about TS, anti-bullying and self-advocacy, as well as on-site hospital trainings for doctors. Each member of the Honorary Committee has a history of support for the 20,000 New Jersey children living with TS—a neurological disorder characterized by uncontrollable movements or sounds known as tics.

Rep. Sires has a long history of supporting the TS community in New Jersey. During his days as the New Jersey General Assembly Speaker, he helped obtain funding to create the NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders, the nation's first Center of Excellence for Tourette Syndrome. In Washington, D.C., Congressman Sires introduced the first federal legislation for Tourette Syndrome.

“Standing up for the TS community is nothing new to Congressman Sires and we’re grateful for his continued support of NJ Walks for TS,” said NJCTS Executive Director Faith W. Rice. “We hope this inspires others to do the same on behalf of children and families living with TS and its associated disorders.”

To join the Honorary Committee, start a team, or register for the walk, call 908-575-7350 or visit www.njcts.org. NJ Walks for TS at Mendham will take place rain or shine, Saturday, Nov. 14th with registration beginning at 8 a.m.
