Bobby Bohner's Fundraising Page for the 2023 TCS NYC Marathon
Thank you so much for supporting me as I prepare to run the 2023 TCS NYC Marathon.
This is my first marathon, and I am grateful for the opportunity to join Tedy's Team and give greater meaning to my training. Stroke prevention is an important cause that is near and dear to my heart as my grandmother, Sandra O’Neill Gillin, suffered a severe stroke at age 52. She was my Mom Mom and I am running in her honor.
Sandy was a vibrant wife, mother, and friend that fell victim to a stroke at the age of 52. This changed her life and our family forever. I spent many Sundays as a young child visiting Mom Mom at her healthcare facility with my mother Leslie. My mother's commitment to supporting and caring for her own mother for so many years has always inspired me. Mom Mom passed away in 2017 after living for 25 years after her stroke, and we miss her dearly. I am excited and honored to run in her memory and for such an important cause. This brings a deeper meaning to my training for the 2023 TCS NYC Marathon as a part 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!
