Why become a Volunteer / Guide?

 

On any given day, a volunteer may serve as a disabled athlete's eyes, ears, guide and motivator.  Ask any one of our volunteers and they will tell you they get back much more than they give.

 

Volunteers are a vital part of the Achilles Houston community & take on numerous roles, such as:

 

  • Helping disabled runners become familiar and proficient with special equipment

  • Participating in weekly workouts - on foot or as a bike guide

  • Providing guidance and running/wheeling advice during races

  • Helping out with race-day logistics

  • Being all-around awesome
