Now, an international organization, our mission is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream athletics in order to promote personal achievement, and enhance self esteem.

Athletes - Achilles membership is free, and we welcome anyone with a disability, including amputations, cerebral palsy, cancer, multiple sclerosis, paraplegia, stroke, traumatic brain injury, autism, and vision impairment.

Volunteers - For volunteers, there are many opportunities to get involved and share the spirit and joy of achievement. We are looking for energetic volunteers who enjoy running or walking to accompany athletes with disabilities at regular workouts and races, including marathons.
