Achilles International Ecuador is an adaptive sport program that supports adults and children with all types of disabilities to participate in sports. We use sport as a tool to promote social inclusion in Ecuador. There are more than 300,000 (more than 2% of population) of Ecuadoreans live with disabilities. Some 82 percent of people with disabilities live in poverty, hindered by social and economic exclusion on top of dismally low rates of employment, quality education and health care. In spite of the difficult situation that Ecuador is going though our goal is to bring 6 disabled athletes to New York City Marathon 2018. The NYC marathon is a life changing experience and we would like to give this opportunity to as many as we can. Please help 6 disabled members from Ecuador come to participate in the New York City Marathon and show the world the unlimited possibilities we all have regardless of our ability or disability. We can do it together with you! Thank you very much for your support.
