I have written about Team Hoyt before. They are the inspirational father/son team that competes in marathons (especially the Boston Marathon) and triathlons (including the Iron Man). Rick is a man with graduate of Boston College and works there in the special education department. He has cerebral palsy and uses high tech AAC to communicate. His father, Dick, has competed as Rick's legs in hundreds of events over the years.
Team Hoyt is now in the running for the final cut of the Toughest Athletes in America. They are, at this moment practically tied at 49% to 51% (not to their favor). You can vote for them in under two minutes.
