Achilles Kids is a free running, walking and rolling program for children with all types of disabilities. Kids run or walk laps in gym class - either a few minutes during each gym class, or for a longer period once or twice a week. Achilles Kids provides lap charts for students to keep track of the distances they walk. Students receive completion certificates and, if they walk a mile, a free pair of Adidas sneakers. Achilles Kids is a program of Achilles International, which seeks to empower people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running events in order to promote personal achievement. Thanks to Barbara Cole for introducting our students to this fun and healthy program!
