The story of Rick and Dick Hoyt - Team Hoyt

Here is some inspiration for the cross country, if these guys can do this, then anyone can run 3km!




What is the key message from this video?  What emotions does it invoke in you?

What has been done well in this documentary? How has the film maker told the story?

Do you know of any other inspirational stories like this (people who have overcome great adversity) ?

What inspires you in life?

  1. The key message from this video is strive to your victory and never give-up even if your injured.IT gives me that feeling of sadness and happyness.Sadness for when rick is paralysed or has an illness and is sitting in the front of the bike and happyness for how he wanted to do the race and did it even though he was ill in some way.

    I don't know the names of some other inspirational stories like this but i know that i have watched something like this before.I think some of this inspirational stuff could also could have happened in the paralympics.

    What inspires me is the video which is even if you are injured or have an illness, don't let that hold you back from letting you do what you want.

    Heyyyyy,
    I think this documentry tells us that if we put our minds to something we can do it. I feel inspired by this story because it makes me feel like I can do anything I want if I work hard enough for it.

    The film maker that made this story documented it very well i think. I like how the producer filmed the man in the story saying what he felt and thought. The film maker told the story like it was life changing and it worked well and got me hooked.

    I do not know anymore stories like this but I would like to here more stories like this. I dont know what inspires me yet.
    What inspires you??

  4. Hey everyone,
    The main message is even if you can't do something you can always try and never give up and keep going to the end.
    It has inspired me to never give up and no matter how hard things get go all the way to the finish. The story is told well.

  5. I think the key massage of this video is that even thow youre disabiled dosent mean you can just give up on the things you love.this video made me feel a bit sad and happy at the end that they are still doing it.I think this doco has done well on making people fell sorry for them but then happy for them.The film maker has told the story well as they made it sad and then happy and full of emotions.I have heard that there was a man without limbs and is doing all these amazing adventuresand has made a book about it.What inspiers me in life is doing ballet and sports I do hockey and I love it!

  6. I find this very inspirational for Cross Country and other similar stuff. His father is showing him how much he cares for his son by pushing him to run 3km. I am going to run more in Cross Country and maybe do some running in my own time as well so I can get better at running.

  7. The thing that was done well in this documentary was the way how the filmer didn't shake of move the camera or whatever device they used and they mainly.The film maker told the story pretty good by telling their feelings and how Rick and Dick's carrer all started.

  9. Hi,

    I think the key message was maybe don't let a disability stop you from chasing your dreams.
    The video sort of makes me sad, because he can't lead a normal life, but then again the dad said that Rick was probably happier than most people.

    I think the documentary is good because it is inspiring and it tells us about something that actually interesting.
    I think the filmmaker has definitely told the story because they get everyone's thoughts.

    I often watch medical miracle stories and things like that. The ones that tell you about someone with a disability and how they live.

    Songs that I relate to really inspire me a lot because they're from personal experiences and help me know I'm not the only going through those things.

  10. Hi everyone
    I think the key message is that you can do anything if you set your mind to it. This video makes me fell sad as well as happy because Dick didn't give up on Rick he kept going and he helped him which makes me fell happy.
    I think the documentary has been done well. He has told the story by interviewing the parents and telling us what had happened.
    I haven't seen anything like this before but I have seen the same thing before.
    My family and some of my friends inspire me to do things.

  11. Hi everyone,
    I think that the key message is to be determined about everything that you do and that if they can do this then you can do anything It makes me feel happy that his parents didn't give up on him and he is able to do things that most people can do. I think that they told the story really well and left you thinking about it. He used the dads comments joined together with the news story to explain what was happening.Bethany Hamilton's story is inspiring because her arm got bitten off by a shark but she still continues her dream of surfing and she doesn't let it hold her back. Nothing inspires me but stories like that make me think that I'm really lucky. What exactly is his disability? Doesn't Dick get really tired from carrying him around and pulling the boat?

  12. Hey people:),
    I think that the key message was don't let anything stop you from chasing your dreams.
    The video kind of makes me sad but happy that the father would like do anything for his son.

    I really like the documentary because it shows how strong of a bond there is between this father and son,and what they have is extremely strong and to me it is like nothing can break that.
    I think the film maker did a really good job because he filmed it so that people would realise that nothing can stop you from getting to where you want to be.And people would find it inspirational.

    I haven't really seen a video like this.But it makes me feel deeply saddend that I have been avoiding people like this for as long as I can remember.

    I think that short clips like this and songs are really inspirational because they make you feel deeply about other people.They also make me feel welcomed because like if I ever go through an experience like this I will know that I'm not alone.

  13. I think that the message is to never give up and to not let anything get in the way of what you want. I feel happy because it is awesome that Ricks dad helps him do lots of things that some people don't do. But I also feel sorry for Dick because it must be challenging to look after him.

  16. The key message is to never give up. It inspires me. The filmmaker told the story as the father would do any thing for his disabled son. Nick Vujija was another person who inspired me. He was born with no limbs. Something that inspires me is running.

  17. I think the key message is if you are disabled you can still try
    I think the film maker told the film is a good way for him to tell what the film is about
    A man is in a race and he really badly trips in the middle of the race and he hurts his angle badly but he gets up and keeps going
    Even if you are disabled you can still try!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To not give up and to take pride in yourself.
    Sad to see that the doctor say just leave him and the dad said no I want to rasie him like a normal kid.
