The mission of Achilles Houston is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream athletics in order to promote personal achievement, enhance self esteem, and lower barriers to living a fulfilling life.
We welcomes people of all disabilities, any age, with any level of fitness. We meet weekly to workout and all athletes are paired with an able-bodied volunteer for support. While we are mainly "runners" we encourage all types of sports to join us.
Achilles Houston is completely free for everyone. We will also cover all race fees and, when possible, transportation to races as well.
Achilles Houston is the local chapter of the larger non-profit, Achilles International, who has been serving those with disabilities around the world for almost 40 years.
