What: An approximately five kilometre-long outdoor trek.
When: 2:00 p.m. local time on Sunday, March 25, 2012.
Where: In communities across Canada. You can have your trek in a public park, on a walking trail or down a neighbourhood street, it’s all up to you!
How: You can go as an individual, with a handful of good friends, as a family, or with your neighbours, coworkers and fellow students - your whole community. For a list of community treks, click here.
Why: To raise much-needed funds to carry out the TS Foundation's mission of hope, to bring caring people together, to raise awareness, and to have fun! We chose March, a wintry month, so that the trek would be “as challenging as the lives of people affected by Tourette Syndrome, with weather as unpredictable as the disorder itself.” Prizes Official Prize Rules
