Achilles’ original programs, our chapter workouts and races, have grown over the years to include participation in marathons throughout the world, as well as our signature 5M Hope and Possibility Race. In that time, we have also developed two very unique specialized programs to serve children with disabilities and injured war veterans. Our Achilles Kids program provides training, racing opportunities, and an in-school program for children throughout the U.S. The Achilles Freedom Team program brings training, access to specialized equipment, and marathon opportunities to disabled U.S. military veterans.
Although all of our programs focus on athletics, the truth is, sports are simply the tool for accomplishing our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration and the joys of achievement to all people with disabilities.
