The Achilles Resilience Relay is the first event of its kind to celebrate resilience and raise awareness of Americans living with a disability.
KINeSYS is proud to be providing sunscreen to the 200+ athletes and crew for The Achilles Resilience Relay. Achilles International is a global organization operating in 25 countries including the US, which transforms the lives of people with disabilities through athletic programs and social connection.
The Relay is the first event of its kind. Achilles athletes with disabilities will kick off a 650-mile relay from Charlotte, North Carolina up the East Coast ending in New York’s Central Park at the start of the 19th Annual Achilles Hope and Possibility® 4-Miler. Athletes and their guides will run each day from sunrise to sunset to celebrate resilience in the face of adversity and to shed light on the 26% of Americans living with a disability.
KINeSYS Champions, feature two Achilles Volunteers and a number of veterans, giving the community a strong connection to this incredible event.
“Achilles is everything we stand for, empowering each individual athlete ‘however you perform’, and we are honored to be sponsoring an event which celebrates resilience, hope and possibilities. KINeSYS is proud to partner with an organization that supports wounded military personnel and veterans; as well as adults and children with disabilities, to enjoy the joy of athletic endeavors and the hope, inspiration, and sense of achievement they bring.” Lisa Heggie, KINeSYS Co-Owner.
