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 2022 Eversource Hartford Marathon for the 9th consecutive year!
We are also promoting our online RAFFLE to help with our FUN-draising efforts! Check out the awesome items generously donated by Connecticut businesses! Drawing is at 10:20am on October 8th (you don't need to be present to win).
