Event description

Description


What is Our Purpose?

  • Tennis for Tourette’s aims to educate the public and our community about Tourette’s syndrome (TS). Increasing awareness and understanding of TS can help individuals with TS and their families seek the help that they need, provide information on diagnosis and treatment, and reduce the negative stigma that is associated with TS. Ultimately, we can help children with TS lead healthy and productive lives. Proceeds will be donated to the Tourette Association of America to provide health education and training to physicians and healthcare workers about TS and related disorders.

What is Tourette's Syndrome?

  • TS is a neuropsychiatric disorder most common in children. It is characterized with mild to severe involuntary tics and outbursts, uncontrollable hyperkinetic movements, and is often accompanied by various conditions including, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression, and learning disabilities.

How Can You Help?

  • 1 of every 360 children ages 6 to 17 have been diagnosed with TS, but exact numbers are unknown. Symptoms are not well recognized, so some individuals with TS do not get diagnosed early enough to receive treatment. Co-occurring conditions can also worsen, impacting a person’s life past adulthood even after Tourette’s symptoms subside. By participating in Tennis for Tourette’s, you are rejecting the existing stigmas of TS and helping the disorder become more accepting every day. Thank you for supporting those affected
