Remembering the dedicated dad who pushed his son through more than 1,000 races over 40 years.

Anything is possible as long as you put your mind and heart into it. May it be swimming across a lake, singing in front of a crowd, or traveling to the Moon.

Whether you have a disability or not, you can do anything. This father and son proved to the world that racing is possible even when you have spastic quadriplegia.

Based on the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention, a cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. There are different types of cerebral palsy. One is spastic quadriplegia wherein all four limbs, the trunk, and the face are affected.People with this disability usually cannot walk. But, Dick and Rick Hoyt proved to everyone that it is possible.

Dick and Rick Hoyt were an unforgettable team. For over 40 years, Dick Hoyt ran the Boston Marathon with his son, Rick Hoyt, to inspire other kids with special needs that anything is possible. They did an amazing job that people all over the world are inspired by their story.

You see, Rick was born with cerebral palsy and he was quadriplegic. Doctors advised Dick and Judy Hoyt to consider putting their son in a special care facility. But, Dick wasn’t having any of it. He wanted to raise his son like any other child.
