American Stroke Association
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, and his wife Heidi, asked the American Stroke Association to work with them to create “Tedy’s Team,” an endurance training team raising money for the American Stroke Association and training to complete the Boston Marathon® and other races near and far. Their participation not only supports the Bruschi family’s fight against stroke and honors both the survivors and the loved ones lost to America’s No. 5 leading cause of death but also lives the mission of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association by being active and living a healthy lifestyle.
Always remember the warning signs of stroke: F.A.S.T.: Face Drooping, Arm Weakness, Speech Difficulty all equal Time to call 9-1-1.
