Holyoke, MA (PRWEB) March 03, 2014
Ross Insurance, a Massachusetts-based independent insurance agency, is excited to be a part of a community that knows how to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The Holyoke St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the second largest St. Patrick’s Day parade in the country, and alongside the road race, it is certainly an amazing weekend for the city.
This year, the road race takes place on Saturday, March 22nd, followed by the parade on Sunday, March 23rd. At this time, thousands of people will come together to enjoy the festivities and celebrate heritage. One of the biggest events to take place? Welcoming Team Hoyt.
Each year, the John F. Kennedy National Award is presented to an American of Irish descent who has distinguished themselves in a chosen field. On September 19, 2013, Dick and Rick Hoyt were pronounced the winners of the 2014 John F. Kennedy National Award.
Team Hoyt, compromised of Rick (father) and Dick (son), has competed in over 1,077 athletic events. According to the official Holyoke Parade website, both men have run in over 70 marathons and 6 Ironman Triathlons. In a commemorative service after the Boston Marathon bombing, the President referred to the Hoyts as being “among those who inspire others.”
Ross Insurance Agency is proud to be a part of such a strong, tight-knit community – and proud of those who are honored within it. Aside from being a reliable insurance provider for the state of Massachusetts, the agency takes great pride in its personal involvement within the community and hopes that all residents will support this incredible event in 2014.
