The third annual Evening with Team Hoyt San Diego fundraising event took place Jan. 13 at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club in Solana Beach. Guests also had the opportunity to meet the internationally-acclaimed athletes (father and son) Dick and Rick Hoyt, who has cerebral palsy, as well as athletes from Team Hoyt San Diego.
Rick Hoyt served as the keynote speaker at the event. He speaks via computer-generated voice.
According to its website, Team Hoyt San Diego is a nonprofit “that assists families in inclusion in sports, running races, and triathlons. The chapter is inspired by the father and son duo, Dick and Rick Hoyt. Dick and Rick compete together in endurance events year round.
“The Hoyt Foundation aspires to build the individual character, self-confidence and self-esteem of America’s disabled young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life; including in family and community activities, especially sports, at home, in schools, and in the workplace. Team Hoyt San Diego works to partner with local organizations to show support for its cause through donations as well as to provide assistance at races and events.”
