I am thrilled to represent Team Hoyt at the 2012 Boston Marathon, 16 April - this will be the 30th Boston for the father and son team of Dick and Rick Hoyt and my first Boston!
**ATTENTION!! REMEMBER TO CHANGE THE OPTIONAL PROCESSING FEE TO 0% FROM THE DROP-DOWN MENU SO THAT YOU ARE NOT CHARGED MORE THAN YOUR DONATION AMOUNT.
The amazing love between this father and son has inspired me to support the Hoyt Foundation and I hope it will inspire you to help me!I am running to raise money for the Hoyt Foundation. Team Hoyt's YES YOU CAN message has inspired many around the globe to persevere, never give up, and push others in chairs - read a few amazing stories on the Official Team Hoyt Facebook page to see how Dick and Rick continue to touch lives worldwide.
