I've been with Achilles since I was 6 years old - first as an Achilles Kid, then a member of their adult program, and just recently, I got the chance to intern with them over the summer. I've said it before and I will say it again: I love Achilles! Everyone at Achilles is so warm, welcoming and encouraging; they make you believe that you can do anything you set your mind to and that -the feeling that you CAN cross that finish line - is what makes you push yourself harder and achieve what you never thought possible. Thank you so much, Achilles!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Every aspect of my life! Achilles gave me confidence, strength (physical or otherwise), and a new appreciation for life in general.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Get more people involved through donating and volunteering.
Client Served & I ran my first couple of marathons with them and I interned with them over the summer.
