Journey of life together

Journey of life together (Team Hoyt) 

Dick Hoyt, a retired Air National Guard lieutenant colonel who works at Boston College. He had great hopes when his husband contains her first child as she imagined was a strong and handsome. The results also supported the doctor's examination, so Dick was preparing a pretty cool name: Rick Hoyt. But, God willing another. The umbilical cord wrapped around the neck of Rick obstructs the flow of oxygen to her brain, causing Rick cerebral palsy. At the age of eight months, Rick's condition deteriorated and doctors advised Dick to throw Rick because it was feared would be the burden of family life. But Dick and his wife are committed to continue to take care to large.

Rick grew into adolescence with all four limbs paralyzed and unable to speak. Her parents did not despair even though Rick was almost never out of his wheelchair. One day, Rick threw a desire to join the race. Dick was very surprised and repeatedly asked his son's desire, but also repeatedly asserts his wish Rick. Dick finally ordered a special wheelchair that can be used to run away. He also promised to become his son's hands and feet.

In 1981, Boston society was made wide open, because of the marathon participants who will race in Boston Marathon there is a father and son, who was paralyzed in a wheelchair. Although the race was Dick and Rick did not become champions, but they are an inspiration to many people. Since then they followed the marathon race for 20 years in the city and call themselves Team Hoyt.

After the experience in Boston, they also follow the triathlon (a race that combines running, swimming, and cycling). When running Rick pushed in a wheelchair; when swimming Rick placed in a rubber boat with a rope tied at the waist the father who swam in front of him, and if cycling is placed in front of Rick. They even tested the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii that distance is more severe and long. In March 2001, they have followed the 731 race! "When you unify the limitations both of us, no one in this world that we can not conquer!" Said Dick.
