Achilles International and TD Bank are partnering to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by launching our 1st Annual Virtual Hope & Possibility 5K/10 Miler from July 18th - July 26th. Since its founding in 1983, Achilles has empowered over 150,000 athletes with disabilities to participate in endurance events around the globe. Achilles has always been committed to elevating understanding and dismantling stereotypes and prejudices. We celebrate and honor those who have overcome enormous challenges and will continue our work to move towards a more inclusive tomorrow.
