Craig Carton's personal note on the event follows:

As many of you know, I have Tourette Syndrome as do 2 of my children. Tourette Syndrome is an inherited neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by multiple physical ticks and at least one vocal tick.

Those with Tourettes fantasize for a cure. And now, this dream may be a reality in the very near future. I was skeptical when the notion was first presented to me but I had the opportunity to see patient trials and videos with persons who had significant ticks...remarkably and suddenly “tick free.”

I am motivated now, more than ever before, to raise the much needed funds to make this cure a reality! With your help we can make the lives of those living with Tourettes better - we can accomplish this immediately.

Approval from the FDA is required and requires clinical trials. With sufficient funding, the study protocol can be completed now and submitted to the Institutional Review Board, allowing for the clinical trials to take place through the summer of 2014.

The funding required to conduct the clinical study is between $200,000 to $300,000.

Separately, but related, I have started Camp Carton: A one week summer camp experience for 40-50 children with Tourettes through the Tic Toc Stop Foundation. Camp Carton will be exclusively for children with Tourettes. For those selected, this camp will be entirely paid for through the foundation. Camp Carton will give children with Tourette Syndrome the opportunity to come together to feel connected and have fun all through a specially designed summer camp program.

Please join me on the 17th, along with JOHN STARKS, ANTHONY MASON, JOHN FRANCO, DWIGHT GOODEN, BERNARD KING, CARL BANKS & many others for what is sure to be an amazing event, for an amazing cause, to help fund a cure!

Craig Carton,
President and Founder
