9780306820748: Devoted: The Story of a Father's Love for His Son

Born a spastic quadriplegic, Rick Hoyt was written off by numerous doctors, but his parents, Dick and Judy Hoyt, were determined to give their son all the opportunities of a normal” kid.

In 1977, fifteen-year-old Rick asked his dad to enter a charity race. The twist? Rick wanted to run it too. Dick had never run a race before, and the thought of pushing his son's wheelchair while running was daunting. But, once again, Dick and Rick were determined to overcome any obstacle. More than one thousand races later, the devoted father son duo is affectionately known worldwide as Team Hoyt and continue to move people with their trademark motto: Yes, you can.”

Review:

Uta Pippig, Three-time winner of both the Boston and Berlin Marathons and President of Take The Magic Step®
“Dick and Rick prove that the seemingly impossible is possible with every step they take on their awe inspiring journey. Their unconditional bond of care and support for each other has led to accomplishments beyond the imaginable. They stand alone as a symbol of encouragement to not only the physically challenged, but to us all."

Bill Rodgers, Four-time winner of the Boston Marathon and the New York City Marathon
“It is incredible what can happen when a parent and child unite in an effort to find a shared passion as Dick and Rick Hoyt have. Through very hard work they have become a powerful part of this sport of running, Their story is truly uplifting!”

Zdeno Chara, Boston Bruins

“When I saw Dick Hoyt racing for the first time on TV I thought this man is an animal and I asked myself ‘How can this be possible?’ There’s a famous saying commonly used back home in Slovakia "love can move the mountains" and that's exactly what Dick did for his son, Rick. I've never met anybody who worked harder than Dick and Rick Hoyt. This book is an unbelievable story; it's goes way beyond just racing, it defines what the true meaning of passion really is.”



Deseret News, 4/11/10
Devoted is a story that needs to be told. Dick Hoyt’s retelling of his life experiences with his family have provided and will continue to provide motivation for people to strive to succeed at anything they do...Team Hoyt’s story is one that has inspired millions and will continue to do so.”

Bookviews, May 2010
“An inspiring story worth reading.”

InfoDad.com, 5/13/10
“There is simply no way to find the tale of Rick Hoyt and his father, Dick, anything less than tear-jerking, emotionally wrenching, uplifting, an example of humanity at its best, a tale of what ‘family’ really means...A heartbreakingly heartwarming book.”

Internet Review of Books, May 2010
“Free of jargon, and written with compassion in simple and direct language...Dick Hoyt’s book will likely appeal to parents, and will be a good choice for teaching about diversity issues.” Tucson Citizen, 7/6/10“This remarkable book is the inspirational story of what can happen when two determined people create an unbreakable bond and set out to achieve the almost impossible.” Midwest Book Review, July 2010
