Welcome to the Tedy's Team Fundraising Website for our 2023 Boston Marathon Team
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 part of the Official Charity Program of the Boston Marathon for the 18th year!
Every race we have participated in has allowed us 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.
- Balance Difficulties
- Eyesight Changes
- Facial Drooping
- Arm Weakness
- Speech Difficulties
- Time to call 9-1-1.

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.
