The Muskoka Trek for Tourette will be taking place on Sunday, March 24th at 1:30pm from Gagnon’s Your Independent Grocer in the community room. The Trek is a 5km walk around Bracebridge, raising funds and awareness for the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada.
Participants are asked to register at www.tourette.ca/trek where they can also download pledge forms. You can trek as a family, friends, or individually. All funds raised go towards the TSFC’s mission of education and research.
Tourette Syndrome is a neurological disorder which affects 1 in 200 Canadians. TS symptoms include involuntary tics and twitches, and it is often comorbid with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
