This year the Tourette’s Association of New Zealand will be celebrating its 5th birthday and what better way to mark this milestone then having a nationwide Tourette’s Awareness week.
The event will run from June 18-24 and coincides with other awareness events around the world. The Association would appreciate any grassroots support you can provide to promote the reality of life with Tourette Syndrome. If you can spare time to hold a sausage sizzle or shake a collection bucket at your local supermarket we’d love to hear from you.
If you have any other fundraising and awareness event ideas we’d love to hear those too – maybe a mass mid-winter beach swim or a dress in green day at work or school. TANZ will supply stickers, brochures and posters to help with promoting the cause.
