VIDEO: The Most Inspirational Story Ever

A Story of Love and Courage Against All Odds

Hi Everyone,

A couple of SparkPeople members (thanks to MRSHONEYC and MYSTERYROSE74) posted a link to this video on the site recently.  Our staff thought the story was so amazing that we wanted to share it with everyone.  Seeing how hard this father-son duo (Team Hoyt) works to reach their goals, I can only imagine how many goals we can all achieve at SparkPeople by working together!
I hope you'll watch this video and be as inspired as we are by their story, but also inspired by what YOU will achieve...

    What great inspiration. Thank you for sharing. - 2/9/2015 8:11:16 AM
    It is awesome to see this. I believe that we can overcome all odds and do the impossible with God's help. My son also has CP and learned to walk even when doctors said that he may never do so. See his story on his website at http://youcandoha or on YouTube https://www.youtu
