Sophomores Gresham Wall and Morgan McKinley recently began the newest sponsored Falcon club, Team Hoyt. The organization works to provide inclusion to mentally and physically disabled children and adults in the otherwise exclusive field of competitive running.

Wall and McKinley founded the club with the intention of giving students a way to give back to their community. With high hopes that the club will gain more members and more interest, the school’s chapter of Team Hoyt hosts monthly informational meetings in Rm. 131.  More information regarding dates and times can be found in the morning announcements.

Falcon Team Hoyt’s latest endeavor was participating in the CHKD Love Run in February. And, based off the success of that one event, it was decided that the school was in need of a permanent branch of the organization to increase participation and awareness.

“Gresham and I started the club to get teenagers to get involved with Team Hoyt because it is for the youth,” McKinley said. “We felt that is would bring the community together by having high school students involved in such a good cause.”

Wall also finds the club beneficial, not only to the school’s students, but to the community as a whole.

“We want to raise awareness for those with disabilities with exposure and help with the more nontraditional activity of competitive running,” Wall said.
