You’re invited to take part in the 3rd Annual TREK for Tourette! Come & enjoy snacks + refreshments, silent auction, door prizes, & awards for top pledges! Most importantly you will be helping to raise awareness & funding.
As most of you already know, our son Wyland was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome in 2014. Tourette Syndrome (TS) is a neuropsychiatric or brain-based condition that causes people who have it to make involuntary sounds & movements called tics. Trek for Tourette is a 5km walk held annually, usually on the last Sunday in March in communities across Canada in support of the Tourette Syndrome cause. It is Canada's only national fundraiser for Tourette Syndrome. We truly feel that by supporting the Trek for Tourette, you will be helping us shed light on this disorder, so that we may raise awareness to help remove families & friends with TS from the stigma, isolation & frustrations that come with the challenges they face each day. This event is a fundraiser, with all monies raised going to Tourette Canada. Tourette Canada is an organization that supports families with TS through various programs, advocacy & research. This year also marks their 10th Anniversary! Last year, we were overwhelmed with how successful this event proved to be. Wyland was so pleased to see neighbors, friends, & family trekking & raising awareness for this worthy cause. Together, we raised a total of $10,300.00 with approximately 140 walkers who participated in the Trek! Our goal this year is to surpass that.Contact: Corey & Angie Tone
