Passing the torch on the Charles River

Torchbearers on the Charles: Making the 10th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Rick Hoyt (SED'93) (left) and his father, Dick (center), pass a ceremonial torch to Eric Dietrich, who is on a crew shell powered by a team made op of people with disabilities. The August 3 event at BU's DeWolfe Boathouse was part of a torch relay around the country- the Boston portion was sponsored by the American Association of Persons with Disabilities and a variety of state and local agencies. The Hoyts are longtime fixtures in the Boston Marathon: Dick pushes Rick, who was born wish cerebral palsy, in a wheelchair built for extreme athletic competition. Photo by Kalman Zabarsky
