TRI FOR TOURETTE / IRONMAN
Tri For Tourette is a campaign to raise awareness and funding for an annual therapeutic camp for youth diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome.
The Tri For Tourette campaign was established in 2013 by Director Michael Conway to raise funds for Camp du Ballon Rouge (dBR).
Founded by Michael in 2003, the annual weekend-long camp provides children with a primary diagnosis of Tourette's Syndrome (TS) between the ages of 6-18 an opportunity to establish relationships with other youth and adults affected by TS.
Camp dBR provides a unique experience of hope and acceptance to enrich the lives of children diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome.
It is the ONLY TS camp experience in the U.S. provided absolutely FREE to deserving families, which is only possible through the generosity of donors.
A native Houstonian and graduate of Texas Christian University (TCU), Michael was diagnosed with TS at 21 and has been in remission from a cancerous brain tumor for over 20 years. After completing his first triathalon in August 2010, Michael has participated in numerous races and triathalons to increase TS awareness and education. 100% of funds raised through Tri for Tourette will be used to ensure the mission of Camp dBR to remain a FREE therapeutic and enriching experience for TS kids.
