About Achilles

groupAchilles International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream athletics to promote personal achievement, enhance self esteem, and lower barriers to living a fulfilling life.  The Pittsburgh chapter of Achilles International was established in February 2013.

While our programs focus on athletics, the truth is, sports are simply the tool for accomplishing our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration and the joys of achievement to people with disabilities.
