Thank you to our sponsors and attendees for your support! An Evening with Dick Hoyt was a great success.
Join us on June 23rd, 2017 @ 5:30 pm at the Hagadone Event Center at The Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho for An Evening with Dick Hoyt.
January 1962, Dick Hoyt became the father of a bouncing baby boy, son Rick. Rick came into this world as a spastic quadriplegic with cerebral palsy. With no hope of leading a normal life, the doctors advised putting Rick into an institution to live out his days.
Not only did Rick's parents refuse but Rick and Dick went on to become the legendary duo-team Team Hoyt, competing in over 1,200 races from marathons to Ironman triathlons and cycling across america in just 45 days.
2017 marks 40 years of Team Hoyt magic and spreading their message of YES YOU CAN throughout the country and all over the world.
Dick Hoyt now spends much of his time traveling the world speaking to enthusiastic audiences who flock to hear his can-do philosophy. He repeatedly draws sold out crowds who hang on every word of his moving presentation.
My. Hoyt graciously agreed to come speak in Coeur d'Alene as a benefit for one of 7 Team Hoyt chapters, Team Hoyt Coeur d'Alene. This event will allow attendees the chance to become familiar with how Team Hoyt Cd'A supports the disabled community and how people can become involved through participation, volunteerism and donations. Money raised by the fundraiser goes directly to supporting our athletes through equipment purchases, race support and team merchandise.
To have Mr. Hoyt come speak in Coeur d'Alene is a tremendous honor thart we at Team Hoyt Coeur d'Alene are very excited to share with our community.
A social hour and silent auction will precede the speech.
