Achilles Canada

Raise money for Achilles Canada

The idea of Achilles is a simple one, but the results are profound. Achilles provides the means and support to persons who are challenged by a variety of disabilities to realize their abilities, build self-esteem and to develop their level of physical fitness and strength thereby elevating their overall wellness, through running or other means of motion. Motion is accessible to all, Achilles assists in breaking down barriers between able bodied people and people with disabilities, thereby contributing to a collective enhancement of life.

Achilles provides the unique support and training to runners, walkers and wheelers of all levels. With the assistance of volunteer instructors/guides, the Achilles athletes participate in weekly clinics to help them reach their goals.

Over the years, Achilles has developed specialized programs for children, teens, adults and veterans. Achilles provides training, racing opportunities, and social events for athletes with disabilities. We also bring running and marathon opportunities to veterans who suffered trauma while serving in a branch of the Canadian Armed Forces, predominantly those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
