Welcome to My Personal Page
Hello Family & Friends,
I'm going to Disneyland!! I will be a part of Tedy's Team in the running of the Dumbo Double Dare Race with a 10K on Saturday January 13th and a half marathon on Sunday January 14th!! As many of you know, some of my family members are stroke victims and lived with the disabling affects and complications due to stroke for many years. I will be running in memory of my Dad and Aunts who passed from a stroke, in honor of my cousins who are stroke survivors and friends whose lives have been affected by to loved ones or themselves. My fundraising goal is $7,500. I am reaching out to you to see if you can help me reach this goal and help me remember and honor all those affected by stroke. If there is someone you would like me to run in memory of or in honor of please let me know and I will add their name to my race jersey.
I want you to know that your donations have made a huge difference. Recently the Tedy's Team Center of Excellence in Stroke Recovery opened March 2023 in partnership with MGH Institute of Health Professionals. This partnership helps to provide that same level of care to everyone – free care, for as long as needed to stroke survivors, to their families, to their caregivers.
As always THANK YOU
