Achilles Brisbane

Achilles Brisbane is a newly formed chapter of Achilles Australia, led by local resident and President, Jane Britt.

Achilles Australia is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to create an Australia where people with disabilities can enjoy the social, recreational and health benefits of an active lifestyle. They facilitate training and participation in running and walking events in an inclusive, supportive social environment where people with disabilities can achieve life changing goals with the assistance of guides.

Achilles Brisbane connects individuals with disability with guides to pursue activities such as walking, running, tandem bike riding, rock climbing and many other activities. This is a step towards empowerment and independence for many people who may have previously felt unable to participate in these community or individual activities.

Achilles Brisbane already has events popping up around Brisbane, including at St Lucia.

Achilles Brisbane will use membership fees, corporate sponsorship, grants and fundraising to financially assist members with a disability to enter official events with their guides.

To keep up-to-date with Achilles Brisbane, you can find their upcoming events on their Facebook page, ‘Achilles Brisbane’. For more information please email achillesbrisbane@gmail.com.
