Achilles International is a global, non-profit organization operating in 25 countries- including right here in Connecticut! Achilles transforms the lives of people with disabilities through athletic programs and social connection. Since our founding, we have empowered over 150,000 athletes of all ages and ability levels to participate in endurance events around the globe. While our programs focus on running, our main objective has always been to bring hope, inspiration, and the joys of achievement to all.
Achilles pairs athletes with disabilities and medical conditions with runners without disabilities in order to become active, set goals, and lower barriers to living a fulfilling life. We are proud to be an Official Charity of the 2021 Eversource Hartford Marathon for the 8th consecutive year!
