Move for Tourettes 2021

Move for Tourettes 2021

Posted on 17 March 2021 by Pippa McClounan


To celebrate TS Awareness month from 15 May – 15 June, where people all over the world will be raising awareness of TS, we invite you to support our exciting ‘Move for Tourettes’ campaign


What is it?

You set your own goal and choose where, when and how to complete your challenge anytime during the period 15 May – 15 June 2021. The only limit to your challenge is your imagination - and the government social distancing restrictions of course!

Here are some ideas from previous years:

  • 100 sit ups every day for 30 days
  • Climbing 5000 steps every day for a week
  • 30 minutes on the trampoline every day
  • 5k family dog walk
  • TikTok dance every day for 30 days
  • 10 mile bike ride
  • 26 mile relay run
  • Walk 10,000 steps every day


Who can take part?

Everyone! Encourage family and friends to take part or simply go solo. In previous years, groups have gathered to complete their challenge together, but with the current situation why not create a virtual group with your friends from school, scouts or football, or even your running club to encourage a virtual group event.

Everyone who signs up will receive a bespoke TA medal and certificate.


Why not raise more money?

Why not encourage your friends and family to sponsor your special challenge? Create an online fundraising page through Virgin Money Giving and raise even more money for Tourettes Action. It’s simple to use and is a safe, secure way for your supporters to donate.


The Rules:

  • Registration is £10 per adult and £5 per child (up to age 15)
  • When finished, email us to say how you completed your challenge (eg.Strava, Fitbit, photograph)
  • Post a photo of your challenge to social media using the hashtag #MoveForTourettes and we'll also upload your photo to our Flickr gallery
  • We will send your medal and certificate once your challenge is complete

If you have any questions, please get in touch.
