Jacob is 6 years old and will be 7 the day after the R&R half marathon. He became a member of Team Hoyt VB in June of 2011 and has been enjoying it ever since. Jacob has ran several Team Hoyt 1/2 marathons but this time it will be extra special for him because him Mommy is going to run her first 1/2 marathon pushing him. Her birthday is the day after Jacobs and this would be the best present you could give the two of them.
Jacob was born with Congenital Cytomegalovirus (cCMV) and because of this he now has cerebral palsy and is bilateraly deaf. That didn't stop Jacob though. He worked very hard and learned to walk when he was 5. He can't run but one day he just may. Until that time comes we will push him as fast as we can go to give him that smile. Jacob absolutely lives for race day and these races mean so much to him. As soon as we set off on a race his little arms and legs start swinging and kicking out, he will let out a little laugh and just smile from ear to ear.
Barbara Revak is a member of Team Hoyt and has pushed Jacob for 3 races thus far. She is going to be pairing up with us to give Jacob one great race!
Asking someone do donate for a cause is never an easy request because you want to know that your hard earned money is going to a good cause. Well I assure you that you are giving these children the best gift a kid could ask for. Jacob does not particiapte in normal 6 year old games or play with toys that a normal kid would find enjoyment out of but he has one thing he loves and that is a good race. So if you are able to donate please donate to our fundraiser for Team Hoyt. This fundraiser goes to helping with strollers and their upkeep so we can keep racing. Thank you so much! :o)
