Modeled after the inspirational hereos Rick and Dick Hoyt, Team Hoyt VB 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.
I have been privledged to run with this team for 7 years and have formed many friendships with our athlete riders, their families and the other runners who make this team possible. God has given me the gift of being able to run and this is a small way that I can give back to the local community and give kids and adults the joy of racing! This year, I will hit the streets of VA Beach for my 7th1/2 marathon with the team and I would love your support! Any amount you can give is a huge help for continuing to give the JOY of Racing to our teammates!
