A Father’s Love

When I came across this story, I just had to share… Can you imagine ever competing in a triathlon or a marathon? Many may not consider these feats due to there physically demanding nature. However, devoted father Dick Hoyt not only competes in these events but brings his son with him every step of the way. Dick’s son Rick Hoyt, suffers from cerebral palsy. Rick is a bright intellectual graduating from Boston college but he is physically impaired.

He once asked his Father if he would consider participating in a 5k run with him, which of course he did not turn his son down. After competing Rick said, “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like I’m not handicapped.”

Since then Dick & Rick have competed as Team Hoydt in numerous marathons and triathlons. One never competes without the other.
