We Change Lives Everyday.
Thank you for your support. We are so happy to have you with us.
Achilles International and TD Bank are partnering to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by launching our 1st Annual Virtual Hope & Possibility 5K/10 Miler from July 18th - July 26th. Since its founding in 1983, Achilles has empowered over 150,000 athletes with disabilities to participate in endurance events around the globe. Achilles has always been committed to elevating understanding and dismantling stereotypes and prejudices. We celebrate and honor those who have overcome enormous challenges and will continue our work to move towards a more inclusive tomorrow.
We appreciate you going the extra mile to raise funds for Achilles. Here are some ways your donations supports our programs:
150 Virtual Marathon Finisher medals
100 Achilles Kids t-shirts (original design!)
20 Achilles Kids Tech Shirts
7 local 5K/4M race entries
4 half-marathon entries
The opportunity to ACHIEVE!
The mission of Achilles International is to transform the lives of people with disabilities through athletic programs and social connection. We have 29 chapters within the U.S. and presence in over 40 countries from Japan and New Zealand to South Africa and Canada. Programs include the Achilles Freedom Team for ill, injured and wounded military personnel and veterans. Achilles Kids provides training, race opportunities, and an in-school program for over 9,500 children with disabilities in 23 states. Their goal is to complete a total of 26.2 miles during the school year. TriAchilles expands our running program into biking and swimming. While our programs focus on running, the truth is, running is simply a tool for accomplishing our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration, and the joys of achievement to all.
Your support is vital to our success. Thank you. Together, we help change lives.
