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; 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. By donating in support of our charity athletes at the 2018 United Airlines NYC Half, you will be helping Achilles International to continue to support our inspirational Athletes with Disabilitie. Go Achilles!
