Fundraiser: Achilles International

Achilles International is an international organization that provides support, training, and technical expertise to empower people with disabilities to cross the finish line. They welcome people with all kinds of disabilities and people at all levels of athletic ability. With the help of volunteer guides, Achilles athletes can participate in workouts, races, and athletic programs, and find community.

Achilles International's mission has been important to me for a long time. I've been a volunteer guide for several years and even met Vinny, one of the athletes featured in North of Forty, through my work with the group. This year, I'm proud to support our local chapter, Achilles International Connecticut, with a fundraising event and author talk on January 24 at The Shops at Farmington Valley. We hope you'll come out and join us in our efforts to support a worthy cause!
