May 15-June 15 is designated at the national Tourette Association’s Tourette Awareness Month. During this time, parents, kids, teachers, physicians, EVERYONE is encouraged to support awareness and break the stigma of tic disorders and Tourette syndrome.

The North Central Florida Tourette syndrome Support Group participated in several events to promote awareness throughout our community.  Participants engaged in painting the 34th street wall and participating in a 5K Walk/Run at the Possum Creek Park.
