Welcome to My Personal Page
I am so excited to be able to have the opportunity to run the 2021 Boston Marathon with Tedy's Team for a second straight year! On March 26, 2016 my father suffered a fatal heart attack out of the blue that shook our family in the most unimaginable of ways. Running at that time became my escape from dealing with the sudden loss of not only my dad but my best friend, mentor, and hero. As I began to challenge myself more, I set a goal that I would run the Boston Marathon in his honor but also run for charity so that I could help make a difference in this world. I learned about Tedy’s Team last year and had an incredible close up experience to see all the amazing work they are doing.
Help me as I get ready to run my final Boston Marathon and raise money for Tedy's Team. All funds raised go towards stroke and heart disease research, awareness and education. Each donation is tax deductible. I ask you starting today and up until Marathon day to please donate what you can or spread my mission out to the world. I’ll handle the 26.2 miles that Monday but I will need all the amazing support leading up to then to make this happen!
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.
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 have 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:
- Balance Difficulties
- Eyesight Changes
- Face Drooping
- Arm Weakness
- Speech Difficulties - and if you notice any of those warning signs, it's...
- TIME TO CALL 9-1-1.
