The mission of Achilles Pikes Peak is to enable people with all types of disabilities to participate in mainstream recreation events to promote personal achievement. Recreation is simply the tool for accomplishing our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration and the joys of achievement to all. We pair athletes with disabilities with guides, and advocate for inclusion in mainstream events.
Achilles Pikes Peak supports people with disabilities, improving their quality of life. Regardless of physical, cognitive or emotional barriers, we give people a piece of their lives back that they thought was lost forever! We are 100 percent volunteer-led, including representatives of the various types of disabilities we serve. By increasing access to health and fitness, we support longer and healthier lives!
Achilles Pikes Peak only thrives because of the strength of our volunteers! We are seeking recreation-minded individuals and fitness experts to join us on this journey.
