Live Read for Radio Stations

Most kids resent a dad who is constantly pushing them. But not Rick Hoyt! For years Rick has been pushed, pulled, and carried by his dad, and he loves it. That’s because Rick, a wheelchair quadriplegic since birth, and his father Dick together have competed in over 65 marathons. What extraordinary devotion… Pass It On.
