7 Healthcast: Tedy Bruschi shares story, meets fans at Expo
Tedy went one-on-one with kids, giving them football tips and teaching them the importance of staying healthy.
"Try to be active, get some exercise because today's generation it's easy to just play video games,” Bruschi said. “I mean I have three young sons and I have to tell them too, 'close the Nintendo DS's so we can go play basketball in the driveway…because getting in good habits getting in good exercise and nutrition choices will help them down the road."
The kids said they got the message.
“It was very good…I had a lot of fun playing with Tedy Bruschi,” said one young fan.
“He's really nice, had some good tips,” said Rachel Godwin.
Bruschi said he was impressed with what he saw.
“I see a lot of aggressiveness, I'll tell you that, they're running these bags trying to run them over, these kids got a lot of enthusiasm which I love,” said Bruschi.
Tedy also shared his story of those harrowing moments in 2005 when he had a stroke.
“Stroke doesn't care what kind of shape you're in,” Bruschi said.
With the help from the experts at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, Tedy fully recovered to play again.
“He's just terrific and he makes a big difference in so many people's lives,” said Spaulding Rehab President David Sorto.
Bruschi is a champion who continues to inspire, motivate and share all he knows.
