The mission of Achilles International is to empower 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 the running program into biking and swimming; Achilles Chapter workouts, plus the signature race Hope & Possibility which takes place in several cities worldwide. Achilles International brings the largest field of athletes with disabilities (AWD) to the TCS NYC Marathon and is the recognized authority in shaping AWD divisions in marathons nationwide. "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."
