Their aim is to increase the participation of people with a disability in physical activities, and they achieve this by providing training opportunities and sponsorship for members with a disability to fun run events.
Achilles have now started a Mornington Peninsula group that meet at 8.30am at the Frankston Foreshore Visitor Information Centre on Sunday mornings, though they are still working on boosting the membership of people with a disability in this area.
If PTR members would like to get involved and support Achilles:
1) sign yourself up to their newsletter here, be sure to read their FAQs on the site here.
2) attend a training session. The Tan sessions have a dedicated guide trainer each week.
3) if you want to become a member, complete a membership form http://www.achillesaustralia.org.au/membership1.html club shirts are only ordered once to twice a year so it may take some time to get a shirt to a new member. The easiest way to access shirts is to attend a Tan training session.
For more info, contact their member coordinator, Peggy (firstname.lastname@example.org)
