BENEFITING: Achilles International Inc.

EVENT: 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon

EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2014

THE STORY:

Achilles 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.

The Chicago chapter of Achilles was started in July 2011 and is a new charity partner for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. However, we have ample experience supporting charity entrants through the NYC Marathon and NYC Triathlon. The funds raised through this effort will support the athletes members of our Chicago chapter with race entry fees, training shirts and running jerseys.

Here are a few ideas of how your dollars are spent:

$50 purchases 10 Achilles T-shirts for members to wear in training sessions and in races

$357 pays the entry fee for one international athlete in the New York City Marathon

$500 supports one athlete in a full year of running races (includes one marathon)

$1,000 sponsors one Chicago athlete in the New York City Marathon in November including airfare and accommodations

$4,000 purchases one handcrank wheelchair for an Achilles athlete to use in a mainstream marathon

~~Many of our athletes would not be able to participate in mainstream competitions were it not for the generosity of our individual donors. Won't you please give what you can?
