The Tourette Association of America Southern California Chapter (SoCal TAA) has developed and launched a fun and creative challenge to support the Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community. Take the Suck a Lemon Challenge, encourage others to join you, and raise funds and awareness that can help make a difference!
Mindy Weiss, SoCal TAA Board Member and Creator of the Challenge said: "Sometimes people with Tourette Syndrome feel that "sucking a lemon" might be easier than dealing with Tourette Syndrome. In an effort to raise awareness and research funds for the Tourette Syndrome community, alongside our TAA Southern California Chapter, I am proposing we all take the challenge today to create a viral sensation in a safe, sour, and amusing way. Let's bring people together to have a good laugh and support a good cause. The TAA Southern California Chapter hopes to reach the general public by normalizing this neurological condition (that causes uncontrollable vocal and motor tics) and bring some fun to a difficult situation."
How to Participate:
