Achilles Connecticut Hope & Possibility® 5K/10K/Kids Run
EVENT DATE: Jul 22, 2018
The Hope & Possibility® is the signature race of the not-for-profit Achilles International, headquartered in New York City. The race was founded in 2003 with the remarkable story and recovery of avid runner Trisha Meili, author of I Am the Central Park Jogger: A Story of Hope and Possibility. In August 2016, The Achilles Connecticut Chapter hosted it’s inaugural Hope & Possibility® 5K/10/Fitness Walk/Kids Run presented by Cigna, with Trisha Meili serving as Honorary Chair. In July 2017, over 500 runners joined adaptive athletes from Achilles Boston, New York, Rhode Island and Connecticut at the starting line, showcasing the power of the human spirit! All proceeds from the race benefit the Achilles International-Connecticut Chapter. We are excited to host our 3rd annual race on July 22, 2018! With your support, we can raise even more awareness of and funds for our inspirational Achilles athletes!
