Raising Awareness | Fighting Stroke
Welcome to Tedy's Team!
WHAT IS TEDY'S TEAM?
Tedy Bruschi suffered a stroke in February 2005, at the age of 31, just weeks after winning his third Super Bowl and days after returning from playing in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii. As he recovered, Tedy committed himself to being an advocate, spokesperson, and inspiration for stroke survivors in our area.
Tedy created “Tedy’s Team" and asked the American Stroke Association to partner to raise money and awareness for stroke. Tedy's Team is an endurance training team, a group of runners raising money for the American Stroke Association that train to complete the Boston Marathon®, the Falmouth Road Race and various other races around the country. Their participation supports Tedy Bruschi’s fight against stroke and honors both the survivors and the loved ones lost to America’s No. 5 leading cause of death.
In addition to the dollars being raised, an equally important issue for Tedy's Team is the increase in awareness of stroke and recognition of its warning signs. Tedy’s Team is striving to reach as many people as possible in its message of recognizing the warning signs and acting appropriate when seeing them -- calling 9-1-1 immediately.
