“Tedy’s Team,” is a group of runners raising money for the American Stroke Association through their training for the Boston Marathon® and many other major road races.  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. 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.
