Achilles Connecticut’s Charity Runner Program



  • Help us fundraise as a Charity Runner in any event of your choosing throughout the year.  *Our largest event of the year is the Eversource Hartford Marathon and many of our members, including the public are invited to run in support of our Official Charity Partnership.
  • Fundraising Minimums: When you hit your minimum, we will reimburse your registration fee which you paid.
    • 5K – $500 
    • Half marathon – $750 
    • Marathon – $1000 
  • Tech Support: You can build your personal fundraising page or share our main page. NOTE: Athletes and guides matched for the race can fundraise together using a page created by the athlete. 
    • Give your page a short title. 
    • You can add a photo of yourself
    • Customize the message. 
    • Share, share! This platform allows you to share on social media
      with a  single click – but emails sent to friends, family, colleagues often produces the best results.

  • Fundraising incentives for those who hit their targets! Past raffle items include: coaching package from Run-U, tickets to the Hartford Yard Goats baseball game, running hats and coupons from Fleet Feet Sports, tickets to the Connecticut Islanders Hockey game, Nuun bundles, gift certificates to the Thomas Hooker Brewery, wine from Lost Acres Vineyard, a gift certificate to The Flying Monkey Grill & Bar, and a park and fly overnight package from the Hartford/Windsor Marriott!


  • Donors can also make a donation by check on your behalf, and those offline donations will be recorded  and applied to your fundraising efforts.  Make checks payable to Achilles Connecticut.  Our mailing address for check donations is: PO Box 2302 Branford, CT 06405
  • Share, share, share!! This fundraising platform allows you to share on  social media with a single click – but sharing via emails sent to friends,  family, colleagues often produces the best results.

  • Check with your employer about matching gifts…last year we received a  few thousand dollars through matching corporate gifts alone! 
  • For volunteers, some companies will also reward you as the employee for  giving back to the community as a volunteer for a charity, by making a donation in your name to that charity. 

  • Ask family, friends, neighbors who own their own businesses. Ask in  your local community at places you frequent!
