Welcome to Charlsie's Fundraising Page!
Hello and Welcome!
I am thrilled and honored to be running the 2022 New York City Marathon with Tedy's Team. This will be my fourth Marathon with Tedy's Team and I could not be more excited! 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!
My inspiration for joining Tedy's Team back in 2018 was my brother Ryan. He suffered a severe stroke shortly after is 40th birthday. Throughout the years he has had his fair share of setbacks. But with the setbacks, he manages to maintain a positive attituide and a hopeful outlook. Ryan has been and continues to be an inspiration to myself and my entire family. Throughout the years, Tedy's Team has given me the oppurunity to meet incredible people, especially many survivors with inspirational stories, I run for my teammates past and present, as well as everyone else impacted by stroke and heart disease.
One important aspect of being on Tedy's Team is to elevate the awareness 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.
