A Story of Dedication, Hope and Love


Have you heard the inspiring story of Team Hoyt? It is a remarkable story of dedication, hope and love. Dick Hoyt and his son Rick Hoyt, compete together in marathons, triathlons, and other athletic endeavors, including the Ironman – the toughest triathlon ever, includes three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island. Here’s what’s really inspiring about this father and son bonding, Rick has cerebral palsy, which makes it impossible for him to walk or talk. His father pulls him in a special boat as they swim, carries him in a special seat up front as they bike, and pushes him in a special wheelchair as they run. Watching their inspirational journey together makes me realize that  no matter how desperate the situation is…and when it seems that no one is left hanging in there for you…look up…you have a Father in heaven who carries you through His loving arms.
