Welcome to Angela's Disney 2024 Fundraising Page!
Hello Everyone! Welcome to my fundraising page for the 1/2 marathon that I will be running at Disneyland® in January 2024! Some of you may know that for the past 5 plus years my busines partner (Kim) and i have voluteered our time to massage the Tedy's Team® athletes at the Boston Marathon®. These runners may have chosen to run in memory or honor of a family, friend...or maybe they themselves suffered a stroke and this is part of their comback! So this year when my sister Elizabeth mentioned that Tedy's Team was running in the 2024 Disneyland 1/2 marathon... I figured well here is my chance to honor my Pathing (Godfather) who had multiple strokes and my cousins Danny, David, Scott and Owen that have had cardiac issues. This is a chance to give back to an amazing organization that is near and dear to my heart by using my voice to raise awareness on the importance of stroke prevention, research and eduction. This fundraiser will also get me back into doing one of my passions...the sport of running! I am honored to be apart of this team... because everyone deserves their comback! Thank you ~Angela
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. to learn more about who we are, please see our website, www.tedysteam.org.
We are honored to be part of runDisney Disneyland® race weekend! Back for the first time since 2017!

- 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.
- Chest pain and discomfort
