El equipo Hoyt recibe el premio Jimmy V Perseverance


Ya os he hablado varias veces del Equipo Hoyt, un padre que lleva 30 años haciendo triatlones empujando la silla de su hijo minusválido porque es la única cosa en el mundo que le hace sentirse libre.

En Julio de 2013 recibieron el premio Jimmy V Perseverance Award y éstas fueron sus palabras.

Dick and Rick Hoyt, a father and son team who have been participating in races together for more than 30 years, were presented the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at The 2013 ESPYS on July 17.
Rick, now 51, was born with cerebral palsy and though unable to use his hands or legs he and his 73-year-old father have run in more than 1,000 endurance events—including triathlons (6 Ironmans) and marathons (70) —with Dick pushing his son in a custom-made running chair.

Don't give up

Don't EVER give up
