BENEFITING: MYTEAM TRIUMPH
EVENT DATE: Sep 01, 2013
As many of you know, I have been participating in the RnR Half Marathon Va Beach for some time now; and have been fortunate enough to find much success as a runner in this event. Two years ago, I had the pleasure and amazing experience of pushing for Team Hoyt in the 2011 RnR Half Marathon. What an experience it was! Since that time, I have pushed for Team Hoyt in several events throughout the years, and am loving every minute of it.
This year, I will once again be pushing Alana and representing Team Hoyt at the RnR Half in Virginia Beach, on Sunday, September 1. Alana is an amazing young girl who is a resident at St. Mary's Home for Disabled Children (http://saintmaryshome.org/). Alana is full of energy and sure does love to go fast. Throughout the entire race last year she got so excited every time we came by a live band, cheer group, or large crowd. So excited, that she managed to kick her shoes off a few times! And when fatigue started setting in towards the end, she kept my spirits up and the energy going. This year we want to have has much fun, if not more, than last year!!
Team Hoyt is the inspirational story of a father, Dick Hoyt, and his son, Rick Hoyt, who compete together in marathons and triathlons across the country.Team Hoyt strives to help those who are physically disabled become active members of the community. Team Hoyt's message, "Yes You Can!" (http://www.teamhoytvb.com)
I am hoping to raise a minimum of $500 ($250 in Alana's name / $250 in my name) to help Team Hoyt VB to reach their yearly goals! If you would prefer, you can may also give cash or check, made out to Team Hoyt VB; and either give to me directly or mail to Ryan Carroll, 195 S. Rosemont Road, Suite 118, Virginia Beach, VA 23452
