THE STORY:

Dear Friends, Family Members and Fellow Runners,

Please join me in supporting an amazing organization as I train for the 2014 NYC Half Marathon. I first ran with Achilles International in 2011 on a Saturday morning in Central Park and knew that I had found an incredibly special community. Seeing the strength and courage of athletes who accomplish huge feats despite their physical disabilities has inspired me to continue reaching for bigger goals, both athletically and beyond.  Please consider supporting Achilles International (and me) with a donation - any amount you can contribute would be much appreciated!

ABOUT ACHILLES INTERNATIONAL:

The mission of Achilles International is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream athletics, to promote personal achievement, enhanced self esteem, and the lowering of barriers between people.

This non-profit organization has chapters and members in over 65 locations within the United States and abroad. Every day, in parks, gyms, and tracks all over the world, Achilles provides athletes with disabilities with a community of support. Able-bodied volunteers and disabled runners come together to train in an environment of support and community. Within this community, runners gain measurable physical strength and build confidence through their sense of accomplishment, which often transfers to other parts of their life.

Over the years, Achilles has also developed specialized programs for children and war veterans. Achilles Kids provides training, racing opportunities, and an in-school program for children with disabilities, while our Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans program brings running programs and marathon opportunities to disabled veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

While our programs focus on athletics, the truth is, sports are simply the tool for accomplishing our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration and the joys of achievement to people with disabilities. Nothing illustrates this more than our signature event, the Hope and Possibility Five-Miler. In this race, able-bodied and disabled athletes participate side-by-side and, with several disabled award categories, it puts a first place win within the grasp of all runners.

Funds raised during the NYC Half Marathon will go to this organization that has forged bonds between a diverse and inspirational community of athletes.
