Welcome to the Tedy's Team fundraising website for our
2024 UNITED AIRLINES NYC Half Marathon 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.
We are honored to be back again as a part of the Offical Charity Program for the 2024 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon!

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.
