Massachusetts State Police announce passing of Boston marathoner Rick Hoyt


“We offer our deepest condolences to the family of Boston Marathoner Rick Hoyt, seen here being pushed along the race course by his father Dick Hoyt.

Rick died Monday at age 61 from respiratory system complications. For decades Dick Hoyt pushed Rick, who had cerebral palsy that left him a quadriplegic. along the Marathon route in his wheelchair; the duo finished 32 Boston Marathons together. Dick Hoyt passed away in 2021 at age 80.

To those involved with the Marathon, including the hundreds of Massachusetts State Police Troopers who provided security along the race course every year, the Hoyts were an inspiration to see. Their accomplishments will never be forgotten and will forever serve as a reminder of the triumph of body and spirit.” -Massachusetts State Police.
