THE STORY:

Hello everyone,

As many of you already know, Achilles International has been a big part of my life over the past five years.  I have raced alongside disabled and handicapped athletes in the Boston and NYC marathons, and have recently spent a great deal of time training and fundraising with our local triathlon team.  Achilles constantly challenges me and I always feel that I can do more for them. 

In 2014, I was able to sponsor a fundraising campaign that raised over $15,000 for the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. I was overwhelmed by the support and am so grateful to everyone who contributed. My focus was on bringing members of the Freedom Team from the West Coast to participate in the iconic Marine Corps Marathon and I have a similar goal this year. It is our hope to sponsor flights, hotel rooms, race entry fees, and meals for up to 5 athletes who underwent rehabilitation at Balboa Naval Medical Center in San Diego. The Marine Corps Marathon, which will be held on October 30, 2016, has special significance for this team. Achilles will have more than 30 members of the Freedom Team competing in the race.

The Freedom Team continues to fill a vital need. Their commitment to this population has only intensified as the men and women leave the hospitals and return to their home communities, often struggling with their reentry to civilian society. On a recent trip, a team member remarked that she was able to to go without her PTSD medication for the first time since her injury. The trip is healing mentally and physically and provides the camaraderie that the men and women are used to from their time in the service. I am honored to be able to support their healing through an organization I have worked with first hand for the past couple years.
