I am proud to be running the 2019 Falmouth Road Race for Tedy's Team this year and support their fight to raise awareness for stroke-related issues.
This is a very personal issue for my family as both my parents and my wife all suffered from a stroke. In the case of my wife Kristen, her stroke was within weeks of the birth of our youngest daughter Vivienne at an age most would never expect.
Kristen has since recovered from her stroke and completed both Falmouth and the Boston Marathon for Tedy's Team. Now it's my turn!
Please join me in helping support Tedy's Team with a donation. Your support is greatly appreciated.
About Tedy's Team
Raising Awareness. Fighting Stroke.
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:
