Achilles CT is one of the 65 chapters of Achilles International
. Achilles International CT Chapter provides the opportunity for disabled athletes throughout the state to return to, or enter, mainstream athletic events.
Our amazing athetes, and volunteer guides they are sometimes paired with, have participated in running events, duathlons and triathlons throughtout Connecticut. At the Cheshire Half Marathon in April, there were athletes competing who are paralyzed and raced in wheelchairs, are visually impaired, and who are recovering from life-changing injuries. At the Hartford Marathon last October, there were 21 athletes at the starting line, ready to take on the challenge of the full or half marathon, or the 5K. 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 local races in CT. 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!
