THE STORY:

Ashton, Nick and Vince are teaming up for their 3rd half-marathon together and their second Virginia Beach Rock'n'Roll half-marathon! This young man and these 2 gentlemen make sure they have lots of fun no matter what and pretzels are always in abundant supply! 

Having met just about a year ago at their first half-marathon together, these guys love racing and most of all, they love racing together! Nick and Vince are both runners with our local Team Hoyt chapter (of Virginia Beach) while Ashton is a rider athlete. Basically what this means is: Ashton gets to sit and feel the wind on his face and hear all the cheers from the crowd. Nick and Vince get to do all the physical work, using their legs to run for him and their arms to push him in his racing chair! They will quickly tell you though that they can't do it without Ashton; he brings the heart and spirit to the team and that big smile on his face is always worth it in the end! 

Smiles, high 5s, pretzels and hands raised in the air? What better encouragement could these two wonderful guys need from their rider? Ashton loves to race and he really LOVES to go SUPER FAST and he's not afraid to tell them "go faster! go faster!" 

Team Hoyt VB allows disabled children and adults with various disabilities to particiapte in road races in distances from 5Ks all the way up to the full marathon distance. This race will be Ashton's 8th half-marathon! He absolutely loves the half-marathon distance because of the longer course and the extended time he's out, means more cheers, high 5s and maybe even more pretzels!

The funds raised help maintain the current fleet of racing chairs as well as trailer maintenance. It also helps purchase new racing chairs. The funds raised also help send our rider athletes on an out of town trip each year to meet their idols, THE Rick and Dick Hoyt; the ORIGINAL Team Hoyt! 

Won't you please consider a donation to help us get to our fundraising goal of $600? The ultimate goal is for each member to raise $200; since Nick, Vince and Ashton are a 3-man team they need to raise a minimum of $600! Your gift will help Team Hoyt VB to allow more children to experienece of belonging and racing; the thrill of crossing the finish line.

Thank you so much!

Ashton, Nick & Vince
