For running enthusiasts in Massachusetts and across the world, Hopkinton is the center of the universe for a few hours once a year.
One of the key aspects of that Boston Marathon Day for the past three decades has been, and still is, the father-son marathoning duo of Rick and Dick Hoyt.
Through snow, rain and heat Dick has pushed his son Rick’s wheelchair 26.2 miles into on Patiots Day.
Now, the duo is going to be in Hopkinton year-round. A full size sculpture of was commisioned John Hancock Financial and will be unveiled April 8 at the Center School.
“The Library is quite honored to display this dramatic work of art and we welcome you to stop by to see the maquette,” a press release from Director of the libary Rownak Hussain said.
The model is on display during the library’s regular business hours.
