48 runners to join Tedy’s Team for the 2019 Boston Marathon®. Raising life-saving funds and awareness in the fight against stroke.

We recently kicked-off our 2019 Boston Marathon® season with a team dinner at Granite Links Golf Course in Quincy. The team, which consists of 48 runners, many of whom are stroke or heart survivors, or caregivers, had the opportunity to meet teammates, share their stories, and meet team co-founders, Tedy and Heidi Bruschi.

“At what was a scary time for my family, a connection to Tedy’s story and his team made it easier for us to focus on a positive outcome,” explained Ross Olson, new Tedy’s Team member and stroke survivor. “I’m looking forward to joining Tedy’s Team this year and being able to pay it forward.”

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 four months, the team will not only be training for the 2019 Boston Marathon®, but they will also be helping us in the fight against stroke and heart disease by raising money and awareness, while honoring loved ones in their lives who have been afflicted by stroke and heart disease.

“Tedy’s Team embodies hope and the power of a comeback from the throws of defeat,” said Kim Chadwell, Tedy’s Team alumni and stroke survivor. “Together we can show others that there is life after stroke.”

Since its inception in 2005, Tedy’s Team has raised over $5.2 million for stroke research and educational programs with the support and dedication of over 1,200 participants. This year’s team has a $575,000 goal this season. In addition to raising funds, Tedy’s Team continues to raise awareness of stroke and its warning signs and symptoms.
