Talk about love in action. This man has raced with his disabled son in over 1,000 events.

“They said, ‘Forget Rick, put him away, put him in an institution, he’s going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life,’” recalled Rick’s father, Dick Hoyt, 72, noting that Rick was diagnosed with cerebral palsy after his birth. “Today he’s 51 years old and we still haven’t figured out what kind of vegetable he is — and guess what? That vegetable has been turned into a bronze statue.”

Wow. We’re inspired. Congrats to Dick and Rick for being honored at the Boston Marathon this year! They certainly deserve it.
