Tedy’s Team announces 2018 Boston Marathon team

We are thrilled to announce our team and look forward to the months ahead that will lead them to the finish line on Boylston Street. Over the next six months, the team will not only be training for the 2018 Boston Marathon, but they will also be helping the American Stroke Association in the fight against stroke by raising money and awareness, while honoring loved ones in their lives who have been afflicted by heart disease and stroke.

Tedy’s Team announces 2018 Boston Marathon team

On February 15, 2005, just weeks after winning his third Super Bowl and days after playing in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, Bruschi suffered a stroke at the age of 31. As he recovered, Bruschi and his wife, Heidi, dedicated themselves to raising awareness of stroke and becoming advocates and inspirations for stroke survivors throughout Massachusetts, New England and all over the country.

Since its inception in 2005, Tedy’s Team has raised over $4.5 million for stroke research and educational programs with the support and dedication of over 1,100 participants. This year’s team is driving for $5 million with a $500,000 goal this season. In addition to raising funds, Tedy’s Team continues to raise awareness of stroke and its warning signs and symptoms.
