I am honored to be running the 2019 Berlin Marathon as a charity entrant supporting Achilles International.
I've been volunteering with this group for about 6 months in New York City and it was a perfect bridge between my passions for running and giving back. For years, I've seen Achilles athletes of every ability at every race from local community 5Ks to major marquee marathons. They've always been an inspiring and uplifting presence through their incredible spirit, determination and positivity.
Primarily volunteering with the kids program, I've seen first-hand the holistic benefits these young athletes gain from both the sport of running and the remarkable sense of community and support fostered by all of the amazing Achilles International staff and fellow volunteers.
Please consider helping this phenomenal organization support athletes of all ages and abilities through this campaign. No amount too small, all efforts are truly valued. Simply sharing this page with those who may be interested is greatly appreciated.
A common uplifting cheer to support these great athletes, "Go Achilles!!"
