Hopkinton Creates 'Hoyt Way' To Honor Legends Rick And Dick Hoyt

HOPKINTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Hopkinton will name a street to honor Boston Marathon legends Rick and Dick Hoyt.

The newly entitled Hoyt Way will be located near downtown Hopkinton.

Dick Hoyt pushed his son Rick, 59, who was born a spastic quadriplegic with cerebral palsy, via wheelchair starting in 1977.

Team Hoyt did their first Boston Marathon together in 1981 and then became world travelers; completing over 70 marathons and more than 250 triathlons.

The town of Hopkinton is also the home to a lie-size, bronze statue of the Hoyts which was installed in 2013.

Dick Hoyt died last month at the age of 80.
