Kara Howard's 2021 Boston Marathon Fundraising Page
Welcome to my fundraising page for the 125th running of the Boston Marathon!
There is no other race where I'd rather tackle my first marathon, and I am beyond excited for the challenge. Your support will carry me through the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boylston St. in this unique October race, so THANK YOU!
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. I have personally seen the impact, and felt the loss, that stroke and heart disease can take within my own family. I will be running alongside my Teammates in memory of those we have lost, in honor of the many survivors, and to raise awareness for the warning signs of stroke.
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 has been 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.
