ON THE TEEN BLOG: How I Started Advocating and What it Did For Me
"I realized that I was not just “the kid with Tics,” but rather a kid who plays sports, loves seeing friends, tries hard in school, plays videogames, and so much more, who also has Tourette Syndrome."

NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome and Associated Disorders is grateful to have received three grants from local and regional retailers: Burlington Stores Foundation, The Wawa Foundation, and the Walmart Foundation.

The grants will support NJCTS's programming, including Youth Development, Education Outreach, and Camp FantasTIC in the new year.

Many of these types of grants are nominated and/or voted on by employees and associates of the company. If your company has a similar program, please keep NJCTS in mind!
