Team Hoyt Oklahoma is inspired by legendary racing duo, Dick and Rick Hoyt. Rick was born with Cerebral Palsy and as a boy, began his racing career as his father pushed him in a wheelchair, and he pulled his dad across the finish line. We want to continue to share the joy of inclusive racing with others in Oklahoma!
Patty and Erik Heine began the Oklahoma chapter of Team Hoyt in 2018. Since our first race in March 2019, we have grown from having 2 racing chairs to now 5, with more to come. This means we can currently support 5 teams in each race. Our goal is to never burden our athletes with race fees, so we need your help to keep our athletes out on the road!
You can help us through a variety of sponsorship levels, for which you will be recognized and THANKED on our website and Facebook page
Bib Sponsor - $35 - A bib sponsor allows a duo team to race on any given day. Race bibs cost approximately $35 for a 5K, and we hope to have all of our duos racing in each of the 10 races in which we plan to participate.
Race Day Sponsor - $250 - A Race Day Sponsor purchases all bibs for duos on a given race day.
Season Sponsor - $1000 - A Season Sponsor helps offset storage and transportation costs for the spring or fall race season.
Annual Sponsor - $2000 - An Annual Sponsor helps cover administrative costs such as insurance, state registration, web hosting, paying our webmaster, etc.
We will also offer OKC Half Marathon Bibs Sponsorship - $125. We hope to have 3 duos participating in the Half Marathon in 2020.
As the great Hellen Keller said, "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." Together, we can make a difference in the racing community in Oklahoma.
Team Hoyt Oklahoma and all of our athletes thank you for helping us to continue to make inclusive racing possible in Oklahoma. YES YOU CAN!
