Shannon Mulvey's Boston Marathon Fundraising Page
Hi all! First off, thank you for considering a donation to Tedy's Team - any support is greatly appreciated!
I am so excited to be part of the Tedy’s Team 2021 Boston Marathon Team! Running the Boston Marathon has been an ambition of mine since I finished my first marathon in 2015 – but I could never get myself to take the leap… until now! After the craziness of this past year, I knew this was the time to focus my energy and accomplish a goal I have wanted to accomplish for a while.
The mission of Tedy’s Team is to raise awareness for and support survivors of stroke and heart disease. I chose Tedy’s Team as the charity I wanted to represent because I unexpectedly lost my grandfather to heart disease in February 2020. The opportunity to support the mission of Tedy’s Team, while running in memory of my grandfather, is truly an honor.
More details on 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.
Tedy's Team participates in the Boston Marathon, Falmouth Road Race, and this year's travel event is Duke City Race Weekend in New Mexico!
We are 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.
