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...
