THE STORY:

Achilles International Inc. wrote -

Our mission is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream athletics in order to promote personal achievement, enhance self esteem, and lower barriers to living a fulfilling life. When you see physically challenged athletes on the course using their arms to propel pushrim or hand-crank wheelchairs through the course, those are Achilles athletes. The people running with a tether between them? Those are visually impaired or blind Achilles athletes. Amputees, people with Multiple Sclerosis or Cerebral Palsy, those recovering from organ transplants, or living with diabetes -- all are Achilles athletes.

While Achilles programs focus on athletics, the truth is, sports are simply the tool for accomplishing the main objective: to bring hope, inspiration and the joys of achievement to people with disabilities.

With your help and support, Achilles International can support athletes of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities in their quest to run the 2017 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon. Our athletes and their guides will race alongside our charity team to bring barrier-shattering inspiration to the streets of Manhattan. YOUR donations help us provide race registration, team jerseys, transportation, team meals, and admin logistics to Team Achilles in the NYC Half.
