PLEASE NOTE THAT ACHILLES INTERNATIONAL IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THEIR 128TH BOSTON MARATHON TEAM.
Achilles International - Boston is a nonprofit that empowers people with disabilities to participate in adaptive running and endurance sports. We support youth, adults, and veterans who are at risk of isolation and poor health habits to join a community and experience the transformative power of running, walking or rolling. We are the only organization that serves individuals with any kind of disability. From young children who never thought they could take part in sports, to injured service members who feared their athletic journeys had come to an end, Achilles encourages all people with disabilities to pursue active lives and achieve milestones they once believed impossible. While our programs focus on running, it is simply the tool for accomplishing our main objective: bringing hope, inspiration, and the joys of achievement to all.
