Get out and get active between May 15 – June 15, 2021 in support of Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month. Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month serves to elevate understanding and acceptance for the condition and those impacted. There are various ways you can get involved and make a lasting difference on a global scale. Taking part in Miles for Tourette is as easy as getting up and getting active! Fun activities include dog walking, throwing a frisbee, jump roping, bike riding, running, and swimming. Members of the Tourette community are encouraged to use the hashtags #TeamTourette and #MilesforTourette.
People around the globe will be raising awareness and funds in support of the Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community! Throughout 2020 and 2021, the TAA has spread awareness virtually and raised the much-needed funds to continue to provide free support and resources to the Tourette community during these challenging times. Those impacted by the condition have been experiencing heightened symptoms like coughing, sniffling, and throat clearing tics, as well as extreme anxiety, OCD, depression, and other co-occurring conditions. These symptoms may be crippling, hindering the ability to fulfill basic needs. In addition, social distancing has heightened mental illness, tics, and co-occurring conditions for the community. These virtual events bring our community to the forefront during the COVID-19 era, helping to create a more universal understanding of the challenges faced each day, as well as to share successes.
