This, by all standards, is extreme perseverance. And all the more so because Rick Hoyt was born disabled and suffers from cerebral palsy. Dick carries him in a special seat up front as they bike, pulls him in a special boat as they swim, and pushes him in a special wheelchair as they run. And Dick learned swimming and rode bike for the first time after he was 6 years old. All this because Rick, at the age of 13, mentioned he didn't feel handicapped when they jointly participated in a local 5-mile benefit run.
Read their highly motivating and encouraging story.
