Achilles Kids is a free running, walking and “wheeling” program for children with disabilities. The program is open to any child with a disability, ages 2 – 21, (and able-bodied siblings are welcome to participate as well). Generally meets twice a month on weekend mornings with most events being held indoors at the Jewish Community Center (334 Amsterdam @ 76th St.). Achilles Kids: Races and Workouts – Training activities that integrate free-play, games, and nutritious snacks to make the experience fun and provide (or feature) racing opportunities. Achilles Kids: Run to Learn – A free school program providing physical activity integrated with educational components. Kids participate in a “virtual” marathon, completed over the school year. The route is plotted on a map of their city and, on a weekly basis, the children do laps equivalent to a portion of the route. Teachers incorporate geography, social studies, reading and math skills into the activity
