WBZ reports the death of Dick Hoyt, who would push his son Rick in a wheelchair during the Boston Marathon for years.
I’m sure he was heartbroken the marathon was canceled.
These guys did triathlons with Dick pulling Rick in a rowboat.
They did a bike ride across the USA.
I've watched the Marathon at various places along the course and always got a bit emotional when the Hoyts went by.
a great featurette on the Hoyts from a few years back:
My bike ride today took me thru Hopkinton center where this statue at the Center School is.
