Review for Achilles International, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I can't say enough about the Achiiles Freedom Team. Four years ago I met the staff of the Freedom Team. I'm a retired Marine and amputee. I was asked if I wanted to race a handcrank wheelchair. The next four years I participated in approx. 15 marathons. The best thing about beinng around the Freedom Team is what I have seen them do for our wounded. I have seen so many kids on the start of a marathon weekend have the look of why am I doing this and I'm embarrased to be seen out as a amputee. Then you see them three days later and they our total different people. Selfconfident and with a feeling like wow ! If I just did a marathon I can do anything with the rest of my life.
