Born a spastic quadriplegic, Rick Hoyt was written off by numerous doctors, but his parents, Dick and Judy Hoyt, were determined to give their son all the opportunities of a “normal” kid.

In 1977, fifteen-year-old Rick asked his dad to enter a charity race. The twist? Rick wanted to run it too. Dick had never run a race before, and the thought of pushing his son's wheelchair while running was daunting. But, once again, Dick and Rick were determined to overcome any obstacle. More than one thousand races later, the devoted father son duo is affectionately known worldwide as Team Hoyt and continue to move people with their trademark motto: “Yes, you can.”
