You can help make a difference in the lives of children and adults and their families, who suffer with the debilitating effects of Tourette Syndrome. Come join us by participating in the 3rd Annual Tee Off for Tourette Charity Golf Tournament at the Plantation on Crystal River, in Crystal River, Florida.
Tourette Syndrome is a neurological disorder that usually becomes evident between the ages of 3 and 9. Most signs of Tourette Syndrome are repetitive, involuntary movements (tics) and vocalizations. Tics can increase with excitement or stress, and decrease with relaxation or involvement in an absorbing activity. The cause of Tourette Syndrome is unknown, but recent research points to abnormalities in certain brain regions.
For most children with TS, their symptoms are misunderstood, and therefore, become victims to bullying by both children and adults. While other children my tease because of the involuntary movements, adults may feel that these children just have a behavorial problem. Adults with TS are also made fun of, because most people just don’t understand what it is.
All proceeds from the tournament will benefit Helping Families Together, Inc, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families who have children with Tourette Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder and other Neurological disorders. These funds will help families with financial hardships, by providing funding for their children to receive treatment and families to receive support from the Rothman Center in St. Petersburg. The Rothman Center and USF have partnered with Helping Families Together to reach out to those families who can benefit from treatments and support.
