Lora & Stroke Hero Liz welcome you! Join us in our mission
Five years ago I made a decision that has forever changed my life...I became a member of Tedy's Team
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.
The work of Tedy's Team is vital to the prevention of stroke and heart disease and to enable the medical community to help those that have suffered a stroke and/or heart disease. They continue to be instrumental in helping to find new ways for prevention, treatment and assistance for families and caregivers. Liz and I hope you will join us and other supporters in helping the fight again stroke and heart disease
The donations we receive will help Tedy's Team Foundation fund lifesaving research, bring awareness to the warning signs of stroke and educate the community on the importance of living a healthy life. Support will also allow us to create our Comeback Assistance Program that will provide financial support to survivors and caregivers in need. Giving them the means for a comeback...just like Tedy.
Tedy's Team is 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.
