I am running the VB Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon again with Team Hoyt VB on Sept. 4th. I have been fortunate to be a part of this fantastic organization for many years. If you’re not familiar with the name, come out to just about any road racing event in VB and you’ll see a proud contingent of runners pushing jogging strollers with a child or adult who provides us with the motivation to run when they cannot.
About Team Hoyt VB -
Modeled after the inspirational hereos Rick and Dick Hoyt, Team Hoyt VB was founded in 2008 and provides the local special needs community the opportunity to participate in over 22 races per year, including a destination race in Holland, Massachusetts with Dick and Rick in May each year. As a 501c3 non profit, Team Hoyt VB uses 100% of the funds received to provide services to the children and young adults as we are 100% volunteer. The money raised helps maintain the existing fleet of racing chairs, some of which cost over $2000; and has helped purchase and maintain two trailers used to store and transport those chairs.
