Achilles CT is one of the 65 chapters of Achilles International
. Achilles International CT Chapter provides the opportunity for athletes with disabilities throughout the state to return to, or enter, mainstream athletic events.
Our amazing athletes, and volunteer guides they are paired with, have participated in running events, duathlons and triathlons throughout Connecticut and the Northeast. At the 2015 Eversource Hartford Marathon in October, there were 41 athletes and guides at the starting line, ready to take on the challenge of the full or half marathon, or the 5K. 7 of our CT Chapter athletes and their guides took on the TCS New York City Marathon on November 1st. We are so proud to announce that Krys, our elite handcyclist, is heading to the Boston Marathon in April 2016! Our athletes train. Our athletes persevere. Our athletes inspire!
Through your generous donation, you will help support Achilles International CT Chapter in numerous ways. Donations will be used to pay for race registrations to get our athletes to the starting line of races. Donations will help offset the expenses needed to purchase adaptive racing equipment so our athletes can train and participate in events. Your donation will be used in so many ways to support athletes with disabilities work toward achieving their goals and fulfilling their dreams, without letting their disability stop them or define them!
