FLIPGIVE and Tourette Syndrome – Ottawa Chapter

This year we want to make our fundraising efforts for Tourette Syndrome-Ottawa Support Group easier by using an app called FlipGive.

Simply join our team on FlipGive and start shopping through the app or team page and we’ll earn money every time you shop with popular brands like Amazon, Starbucks, Indigo, Sportchek and Esso.

Join our team now by clicking this link: Tourette Syndrome-Ottawa Chapter Team.

If you are prompted for a join code, enter this code NRTSRV

Remember to use FlipGive before you shop online so we’ll earn cash back – make a purchase within the first 14 days of joining and we’ll receive an additional bonus!

If you still have questions, here is a handout that explains FlipGive in more detail.


NEW! Virtual Support Group Meetings for Youths and Adults

Virtual Trek for Tourette 2020

I hope everyone is staying safe during this COVID-19 pandemic. Sorry for the late post everyone. Here are some photos and videos that were shared by families of the Ottawa Chapter during their individual Virtual Trek for Tourette this year. Thank you to all who were able to do their trek.





UPDATE: 2020 Virtual Trek for Tourette

Given the current status of the COVID-19 virus, the last thing we want is to put any of our Trekkers at risk.

We are cancelling the meet-up at the event however we encourage that everyone continue raising funds and simply Trek within your immediate neighbourhood.  By doing so, we believe that not only will we still be raising funds, but also expanding our scope of awareness.  

All awards and prizes will still be provided.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Erin directly at or 613.451.1582

Thank you for your continued support!
