I first joined Tedy's Team to of course run the Boston Marathon, but also to raise money and awareness to improve the world for stroke survivors like my Dad. What began as a journey to honor my Dad, has evolved into belonging to a family being part of this team, not only for me, but for my Dad. We have raised money and awareness, but my Dad has also found a universe where people share his story, his struggles and celebrate his triumphs. I am so grateful to continue this journey with these amazing teammates, and my Dad, as we roar into Falmouth and raise even more money for this cause that means to much to all of us.
In recent months, stroke has been all to present in the news, reminding us, that stroke can happen to anyone, at any age. Please consider donating, so we can reduce the number of strokes suffered and improve the comebacks for survivors!
Thank you! xoxo
Welcome to the Tedy's Team fundraising website.
The mission of Tedy's Team is to raise awareness for stroke and heart disease while supporting survivors on their journey, giving them a means for a comeback!
Tedy's Team was originally founded in 2005, when Tedy Bruschi, former linebacker for the New England Patriots suffered a stroke shortly after winning his 3rd Super Bowl and just days after returning from his first Pro Bowl.
Tedy's Team participates in the Boston Marathon, Falmouth Road Race, and this year's travel event is Duke City Race Weekend in New Mexico!
We are honored to be part of the Offical Charity Program of the Boston Marathon and the Numbers for NonProfits Program at the New Balance Falmouth Road Race for 15 years. The Boston Athletic Association and the NBFRR hav allowed us to utilize their platforms to elevate the awarenss of the warning signs of stroke, which are best remembered by using the acronym BE FAST, which stands for:
Speech Difficulties - and if you notice any of those warning signs, it's...
TIME TO CALL 9-1-1.
