    • Yes You Can – Dream Big & Dreams Do Come True
      • Team Hoyt CanadaDreams do come true and Wes Harding from Sarnia, Ontario, has proven that “anything is possible!” Wes has gone from a non-runner, overweight couch potato at the age 40 to a six time Boston Marathon qualifier and three-time Ironman finisher all in eight years. Losing 80 pounds in the process Wes’ life changing attitude came after watching a YouTube video on Team Hoyt (a father who pushes his paralyzed son with Cerebral Palsy in road races and triathlons) entitled “CAN”. This father/son team inspired Wes to start “making a difference” in his own life and in the lives of others.
      • For the past six years Wes has been chosen one of two Canadians to represent Team Hoyt in the Boston Marathon. As a motivational speaker Wes inspires and encourages others to “dream big” and that “dreams do come true”. His message, like the Hoyt’s motto, is “Yes, You Can”! As a non runner Wes’ dream was to qualify for the Boston Marathon and in April 2012, after overcoming insurmountable odds, that dream came true. In April 2013, Wes co-authored his first book entitled, “Destined To Run” (with Todd Civin, forward by Dick Hoyt and Published by Mascot books). “Destined To Run” is more than a story about running, it is a book about chasing after your dreams.
      • As a result of being in the heart of the Boston Marathon 2013 bombings Wes, seeing the Hoyts example, saw the need to make a change in his life that included others. He left his career course as an educator of twenty years and started up Canada’s first athletic ride-along organization created for those with disabilities who would normally not be able to experience endurance events such as triathlons or road races which is now called Team Hoyt Canada. The mission of Team Hoyt Canada is to enhance the lives of individuals with disabilities through running together. After hearing Wes speak you will be motivated to say, “I CAN” do the impossible and “I CAN” make a difference.
