Hi, My name is Raymond Murphy aka "Running Demon" and my Achilles International guides Anna Mercatili & Ryan Trimmer-(He runs basically barefoot in Luna Sandals)!. I am running the marathon and raising money for a organization that has helped me so much in the last 4 years since I joined. I suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury and vision problems,my guides help me complete my races safely and help pace me to get the time I aim for...if I fail to get the time and or race I want I just try again next time till I get the goal I want to achieve!. Achilles International aka Achilles Track Club was formed in 1983 by Dick Traum to help people with any kind of disabilities compete in mainstream athlethic events and to help them feel good about the goals they go for :). Achilles International has athletes of all kind....1. Blind 2. Autistic 3. Traumnatic Brain Injury 4...All of the above.
Achilles is great help to me and I have made lots of friends and have lots of fun and stay physically fit! Please consider making a donation... small or large amount <3
