I have the honor of running for Achilles International in the New York City Marathon this fall. I reached out to this organization because of their mission. Their mission is to empower people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events. They are on the same mission As myself of brining movement to everyone.
Achilles International was started by Dick Traum. Traum is an above the knee amputee who decided to pick up running to get in shape. As he improved his fitness he found himself being the first amputee to run a marathon. With this feeling achievement and success Traum started a running club to empower others to do the same. Now the organization has grown to have chapters all over the world bringing in all athletes with disabilities. I am truly humbled and honored to be able to run with such an incredible organization.
I am not only running with them I am running to support them. I am running so that I can be apart of bringing movement to everyone. You can join me in helping others by donating to my campaign.
