Researching Tourettes and Running for Tourettes!

My name is Marta and for the first time ever I have signed up to run a half marathon. I will run the London Landmarks Half Marathon on the 29th of March!I am a researcher and I have worked with children and adults with tic conditions, including Tourette Syndrome, over the past 4 years. I am undertaking this commitment in the aid of Tourettes Action. Tourettes Action highly value the work of researchers towards the understanding of tic conditions and improving support for those who live with them. My recent work has received invaluable support from the team at Tourettes Action and I am honoured to support them in return by running the half marathon.

London Marathon 2020

I am running the London Marathon for a wonderful charity that supports people and their families that are living with Tourettes Syndrome.
I am going to be undertaking a huge challenge for a non-runner by completing the London Marathon. The training has started and its tough and cold and wet and dark and everything else - but your donations and words of encouragement will keep me going and make it all worthwhile! Please read on to understand why I have chosen this charity.
I have Tourettes and some of you are aware of this, but to others you would never have known or believed me. Mainly because most people think Tourettes is shouting and swearing every 30 seconds, well its a lot more than that. I have 'tics' that are mainly around the face and shoulders, with the occasional verbal tic just like 90% of people who have TS. Since I was diagnosed with TS aged 11 I have told many people of my condition and it is usually greeted with 'no you haven't!' or 'but you don't shout swear words' or even 'let me walk through town with you and lets see peoples reaction'. All genuine responses.
I have for some time kept my condition from friends, employers and colleagues as I have tried to live with it and accept that the condition is not understood. It is becoming more common to see pupils in school with TS but again, it is hidden and they do not want to share that they live with TS. But I would like to help everybody understand what Tourettes is and be able to let children today not grow up feeling the way that I did, that is why I am supporting Tourettes Action. Please help where you can.
Thank you

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
