Hi, I’m Beth, thanks for visiting my fundraising page.
I am running the 2013 NYC Marathon as a guide for Achilles International -- helping a disabled runner navigate the streets of NYC, through 40,000 people, to finish the world's greatest marathon!
Achilles provides athletes with disabilities with a community of support. Able-bodied volunteers and disabled runners come together to train in an environment of support and community. Within this community, runners gain measurable physical strength and build confidence through their sense of accomplishment, which often transfers to other parts of their life. While their 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.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts.
Thank you for your support -- please forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate as well.
