Welcome to the Tedy's Team® fundraising website for our
2024 Disneyland® race weekend!
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.
We are honored to be part a part of this runDisney race series. Tedy’s Team is headed to California to spread awareness of stroke and heart disease and run some miles as we do it! This will be the first time a race is run through Disneyland® since 2017!
The Disneyland® Resort will host four fun-filled days of events, featuring some of your favorite Disney Friends. Whether Guests start their day “barking along” a 3.1- mile adventure or “get their ducks in a row” for 6.2 miles … or even say “see ya real soon” as they embark for an epic 13.1 miles, our Disney friends will be there to cheer them on!! From the start line to the finish line, the Disneyland® Half Marathon Weekend will ensure that Every Mile is Magic!” – runDisney website

Every race we have participated in has allowed us to utilize their platforms to elevate the awareness of the warning signs of stroke and heart disease. The stroke warning signs are best remembered by using the acronym BE FAST, which stands for:
BE FAST is an acronym to help you quickly recognize common signs of a stroke and to take any necessary action by calling for emergency medical services.
Other symptoms may include, sudden and severe unexplained headache or migraine with no obvious cause, and confusion or trouble understanding things they would normally know.
Please also note some of the heart atttack warning signes below:
