4th Grade Class Gets Visit from Para-Athlete

President of Achillies International, Erin Spaulding, came to visit with some students in the fourth grade at Renbrook School in West Hartford. Her visit gave an inside look into the world of determined para-athletes. Students also got a chance to visit an adaptive gym, Chapter 126. They experienced wheelchair basketball, blind soccer and adaptive PE exercises to better understand the lives of their adopted parathletes.
The mission of Achilles International and Chapter126 is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream running, paralympic and Special Olympic events in order to promote personal achievement.
