Train Hard Stay Focused
This will be my 5th year running the Boston Marathon as a member of Tedy's Team. In the past 4 years with the support and generosity of my friends and family I have raised over 45k.
I am excited to yet again, train and run over the next 5 months raising awareness for stroke and heart disease.
I am sure everyone knows someone, a friend or family member who has been impacted by heart disease or stroke. For me, its my brother Paul, who is a heart attack survivor, as well as my mother-in-law Ann, who is a stroke survivor. I have seen their struggles and successes fighting these horrible conditions.
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 and the Falmouth Road Race, in Falmouth MA.
Tedy's Team has been a part of the Offical Charity Program of the Boston Marathon and the Numbers for NonProfits Program at the New Balance Falmouth Road Race for 17 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.
