Eric's Achilles Marathon Campaign

Thanks for visiting my page! This November, I plan to pursue a lifelong dream of running a marathon. More importantly, I will be partnering with Achilles International to complete the NYC Marathon for a great cause. 100% of contributions will be delivered to Achilles to support amputees and athletes with disabilities. Please see below for a bit more from Achilles' page:

The mission of Achilles International is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events in order to promote personal achievement. 

Specialized programs include the Achilles Freedom Team which serves wounded military personnel and veterans; Achilles Kids which provides training, race opportunities, and an in-school program for children with disabilities; Achilles Chapter workouts, plus our signature race Hope & Possibility ® which takes place in several cities worldwide. Achilles International brings the largest field of athletes with disabilities (AWD) to the TCS NYC Marathon and is the recognized authority in shaping AWD divisions in marathons nationwide. 

While our programs focus on running, the truth is, running is simply the tool for accomplishing our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration, and the joys of achievement to all.

Thank you, in advance, for your generosity and support!

Eric
