Welcome to the Tedy's Team fundraising website for Nick Tasca on behalf my sister Eliana Tasca, a young stroke survior!
I recently ran the 2019 Boston Marathon on behalf of my sister with Tedy's Team. It was an incredible experience - I danced in the rain, I laughed, I cried, but most importantly, I ran with a very FULL HEART knowing that my fundraising efforts went to such a meaningful cause.
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! El - the best is yet to come. You said it yourself "Be optimistic for your future. Perservance will get you where you need to be. Gains may not be in the confounds of time we want. Nevertheless, be persistent with repetition and time = recovery."
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 a travel race.
Tedy's Team is honored to be part of the Offical Charity Program of the Boston Marathon for 14 years. The Boston Athletic Association has allowed the team to use the Boston Marathon 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.
Thank you for visiting my page! It means the world to my family as we continue to support El in her recovery - this girl is on FIRE!
