Ashton is a 14-year-old young man that has Autism. He became an active participant with Team Hoyt VB in March of 2012 and has now completed four 1/2 marathons, one 10-miler, one 14K, one 10K, four 8Ks, one run swim run 5K and 10 5Ks with the promise of many more races to come. He even participated in his very first ever TRIATHLON this summer with his best friend and favorite Team Hoyt VB pusher, Marc Leber. He had a blast! Team Hoyt VB has changed Ashton's life for the better. It's given him a sense of belonging to a community, given him some of the best friends that he will ever have, and it gets him involved and active, which is an amazing thing for a child with Autism. He's actually started running himself and just completed his VERY FIRST 1 mile run at the CHKD 1 mile Fun Run with an amazing time of 16:55! He had an entourage of six people running with him and it was an amazing and beautiful moment for him. Please consider donating to this amazing and wonderful cause, one that has changed all of our lives. We want to touch more lives and inspire others..... Thank You!
