BENEFITING: Achilles International Inc.
8 Achilles athletes and their guides are going to Hawaii to run the Maui Marathon for the first time!
A few of the Achilles athletes need a little help to cover the rest of their flight costs and registration fees in order to get them there in October.
We are short 2,500$ and we are asking you to help us, this is a great oportunity to help challenged athletes to forget about their barriers and accomplish their goals.
The mission of Achilles International is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events in order to promote personal achievement. Specialized programs include the Achilles Freedom Team which serves wounded military personnel and veterans; Achilles Kids which provides training, race opportunities, and an in-school program for children with disabilities; the Achilles Para-triathlon Team which expands our running program into biking and swimming; Achilles Chapter workouts, plus our signature race Hope & Possibility which takes place in several cities worldwide. Achilles International brings the largest field of athletes with disabilities (AWD) to the TCS NYC Marathon and is the recognized authority in shaping AWD divisions in marathons nationwide. While our programs focus on running, the truth is, running is simply the tool for accomplishing our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration, and the joys of achievement to all.
