Team Hoyt Las Vegas was inspired by the father and son duo Rick and Dick Hoyt. This is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created for individuals who would not be able to experience the same endurance activity as able bodied runners. Team Hoyt Las Vegas’s goal is to give individuals the experience in the following events:
Triathlons, Marathons, 10k and 5k
We will provide all the equipment needed to allow the Athletes to participate, including boats and harnesses for the swim, trailers for the bike and chairs for the run.
Team Hoyt Las Vegas brings the community together with the equipment necessary to allow them to experience the energy of packet pick-up and the thrill of crossing the finish line. Team Hoyt Las Vegas promotes health, teamwork, and community, and requires the involvement of many people with diverse abilities and disabilities.
To enhance the lives of individuals with disabilities.
To enrich the health and well-being of individuals with disabilities by fostering lasting, authentic relationships through the teamwork environment of endurance athletics.
Health, Community, Opportunity, People
How it Works:
Rider Athletes are challenged athletes who are the inspiration of our team with their spirit of courage and joy.
Able-bodied Athletes utilize specialized racing equipment to guide their Rider Athletes in a road race of triathlon.
Crossing the finish line together, teams build deep bonds on respect and an experience they will never, ever forget.
