32 Marathons

Rick and Dick Hoyt ran 32 marathons together, two hearts racing as one. “When my dad was 36 years old and we lived in Westfield, we ran our first race. After the race, I could not wait to get to my computer to tell my father how I felt,” Rick said “I wrote’ ‘Dad, when we are running, my disability seems to disappear.'" We need your help to honor this legacy and ensure that it continues this year, and in the years to come.

Melissa is running with the Team Hoyt Boston Marathon Team. The Hoyts famously ran to raise funds for organizations like Easterseals Massachusetts, a disability agency that was pivotal in Rick's life and development. Melissa has pledged to raise $10,000 in support of the Hoyt Foundation, and we need your help to make it happen!
