Willie Shepherd & Gregg Mottinger are running the VB Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon again with Team Hoyt VB on August 31 2014. Inspired by the St. Mary's race 8 years ago and our first "race" pushing kids through the halls of St. Mary's Home for Disabled Children, we're back this year to do it bigger than ever.
Gregg and Willie have been fortunate to be a part of this fantastic organization and have teamed up to push a rider/athlete for many of the past Rock 'n' Roll Marathons. If you’re not familiar with Team Hoyt VB, come out to just about any road racing event in VB and you’ll see a proud contingent of runners pushing jogging chairs with a child or adult who provides us with the motivation to run when they cannot.
Team Hoyt VB runners and volunteers make it possible for those with special needs to be integrated into a variety of athletic events from 5K’s to marathons and run-swim-runs. To see their faces light up, watch them smile and hear their cries of joy as they respond to the exhilaration of the ride and cheering of the crowds is what it’s all about. Because of the support provided to Team Hoyt VB over the years, we’ve grown from a 6 person crew pushing a few children from St. Mary’s, to nearly 200 pushers and 80 riders with a massive trailer to haul our jogging chairs and gear.
