Tedy's Team

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 asked the American Stroke Association to work with him to create “Tedy’s Team”, a group of runners raising money for the American Stroke Association and training to complete the Boston MarathonŽ and the Falmouth Road Race, as well as a yearly travel marathon.  Their participation supports Tedy Bruschi’s fight against stroke and honors both the survivors and the loved ones lost to America’s No. 4 leading cause of death.
