Event description

Description

After the Hope & Possibility 4 miler in Central Park, join your fellow athletes and supporters for a post race brunch.

You don't have to participate in the race to attend the brunch!!!

Tickets MUST be purchased in advance at least 48 hours before race day. This event has been sold out every time, space is limited to 85, so it is advised you don't wait to purchase your ticket. BRUNCH TICKETS WILL NOT BE SOLD AT THE DOOR, all tickets must be pre-purchased here on Eventbrite.

Brunch tickets are $30 and include unlimited buffet brunch, coffee and eventbrite fees (cash/credit card payable directly to Dorrian's for all other beverages).

Brunch will be served at Noon, doors opening at 11:30 AM. For those wishing to arrive early, you may grab a seat but the staff will not be ready to serve until 11:30am. This will allow all runners enough time to race, participate in the post-race festival in Central Park and head over to Dorrian's for some grub, drinks and team building!

We will have some very special guests welcoming everyone, so please plan to arrive on time!

There will be a 50/50 Raffle with the proceeds to benefit Achilles International*!

Tickets sold here on eventbrite are for the brunch only.

The 2019 Achilles Hope & Possibility Race in Central Park is sold out but race day help with non-guiding assigments are welcome! Email manderson@achillesinternational.org to learn more. And we'd love you to come out and cheer!!

About Achilles International:

In 1976, Dick Traum, an above the knee amputee, found himself approaching middle age and out of shape. After joining a local YMCA, Dick began running – small distances at first and then, eventually several miles. Within a year, Dick became the first amputee to run the New York City Marathon. The experience was life changing, bringing a powerful sense of achievement and self-esteem. In 1983, seeking to provide that same opportunity to other people with disabilities, Dick created the Achilles Track Club, now called Achilles International.

Today, this 501(c)3 non-profit organization has chapters and members in over 65 locations within the United States and abroad. Every day, in parks, gyms, and tracks all over the world, Achilles provides athletes with disabilities with a community of support. Able-bodied volunteers and runners with disabilities come together to train in an environment of support and community. Within this community, runners gain measurable physical strength and build confidence through their sense of accomplishment, which often transfers to other parts of their life.

Over the years, Achilles has also developed specialized programs for children and war veterans. Achilles Kids provides training, racing opportunities, and an in-school program for children with disabilities, while the Freedom Team of Wounded, Injured and Ill Veterans program brings running programs and marathon opportunities to veterans with disabilities from all over the U.S.

While Achilles programs focus on athletics, the truth is, sports are simply the tool for accomplishing our main objective: to bring hope, inspiration and the joys of achievement to people with disabilities. Nothing illustrates this more than our signature event, the Hope and Possibility Four-Miler. In this race, able-bodied and disabled athletes participate side-by-side and, with several disabled award categories, it puts a first place win within the grasp of all runners.

*50% of the 50/50 raffle proceeds will go to the holder of the winning ticket drawn, the remaining 50% will go directly to Achilles International (limited to $1k). The 50/50 Raffle ticket sales will begin at 11:30AM and end at 1:30PM. Winners will be announced at 1:45PM. All raffle ticket purchasers MUST be at least 18 years of age.
