LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Boston native Ben Affleck will present the Jimmy V Perseverance award at the 2013 ESPYS on July 17, ESPN said Tuesday.
The award will go to Dick and Rick Hoyt, a father-and-son team who have been racing together for more than 30 years. Rick, 51, was born with cerebral palsy and is unable to use his hands and legs; his father, 73, has pushed his son in a custom-made running chair in more than 1,000 endurance events, including triathlons and marathons.
