VIDEO: The Most Inspirational Story Ever

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...
Chris “SparkGuy” Downie

This is a remarkable story. All life is precious. It is a shame that our culture does not embrace it like this father and son. The father showed us how much God, our heavenly Father, loves us. What a testimony! Report

I thought my 3 mile walk in 90+ degree humid weather carrying a water bottle was brutal. I have nothing valid to gripe about. GO TEAM HOYT!
