Trek for Tourette celebrates 5th anniversary, keeps on growing

MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 18, 2013 /CNW/ - It's one of Canada's largest national charity events without a major sponsor, and it shows no signs of slowing. The 5th Annual Trek for Tourette will be held in over 20 Canadian communities from Vancouver, British Columbia to St. John's, Newfoundland Labrador on Sunday, March 24 th, 2013, including Toronto at Evergreen Brick Works. Tourette Syndrome (TS) is a poorly understood, heavily stigmatized neurological disorder that affects as many as one in 100 Canadian children and adults. It currently has no cure.

Last year, the Trek raised $147,000 for the TS cause. This year it is expected to raise even more.
