A very interesting story about Northeastern University’s Matthew Arena in Boston. It is the oldest indoor hockey rink still in use in the world. Formally known as the Boston Arena, it was the home of the Boston Celtics and the Boston Bruins.

I photographed MIT student and football player DeRon Brown for USA Today last Thursday. Brown is leading div. III running back in rushing yards averaging 170 per game and an incredible student. After meeting Brown I was left thinking to myself, no one person should be able to choose if they would like to be a pro athlete or a rocket scientist!
I have wanted to photograph Dick and Rick Hoyt ever since I heard about their story. They are a father and son running team that participates in triathlons and marathons including Boston. What makes them so unique is that the son Rick is suffers from cerebral palsy and is wheelchair bound. He is unable to move his limbs or speak, but his mind is sharp. Team Hoyt as they are called have competed in more than a thousand races since 1977. They raise money through running and speaking engagements for the Hoyt Fund which enhances the lives and mobility of people with disabilities. A truly inspirational story.
