Welcome to Kim Sanger's NYC Marathon Fundraising Page!
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, Falmouth Road Race, and an annual travel event. This year the team applied for and was granted charity bibs for the TCS NYC Marathon. I am a part of the inaugural team selected to run NYC. I run to honor my Father's memory and to help others who have had a stroke to recover so that they can live the rest of their lives to the fullest. Dad had two strokes, and the second one left him paralyzed on the left side. He never lost his sense of humor and witty responses, but he lost out on meeting his grandson and enjoying retirement. If you remember anything from my passion around raising awareness about strokes, remember these signs and BE FAST:
Balance Difficulties | Eyesight Changes | Face Drooping | Arm Weakness | Speech Difficulties | TIME TO CALL 9-1-1.
