Welcome to the Tedy's Team fundraising website.
In 2001 I was shocked to find out my Dad had a stroke. "Daddy had a stroke" were not the words I expected my Mom to say. I was so upset I couldn't even figure out how to get to the hospital and had to have a friend drive me there.
Luckily my Dad had access to great care and recovered. I was upset when Tedy Bruschi had a stroke a few years later at a very young age. He recently had a "mini stroke" but he knew the signs and acted FAST.
Please help me raise funds for Tedy's Team in honor of my Dad. The mission for Tedy's team can be found below!
Thank you for your support!
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!
