Achilles International

Achilles International's mission is to transform the lives of people with disabilities through athletic programming and social connection. Achilles was founded in 1983 by Dick Traum, the first amputee to run the New York City Marathon. Today, Achilles has chapters and members in over 65 locations within the United States and abroad. Able-bodied volunteers and disabled runners come together to train in an environment of support and community. Over time, runners gain measurable physical strength and build confidence and self- esteem as they begin to achieve, which leads to increased levels of aspiration in all areas of life.
