My family, Michael, myself, and our four children, Kayla Anne (16), Emma Rose (14), Allison Jade (11), and Aiden Robert (8), will be taking part in the Achilles Hope and Possibility Race in Central Park on June 24th. Please help us fundraise for this amazing organization. Below is their mission statement, taken from their website. https://www.achillesinternational.org/
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; the Achilles Para-triathlon Team which expands our running program into biking and swimming; Achilles Chapter workouts, plus our signature race Hope & Possibility which takes place in several cities worldwide.
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.
