Come Out and Lend a Hand!

Be part of a terrific event, support our annual fundraiser, and have some fun!

Volunteers are at the heart of the Achilles St. Patrick’s Races. As an Achilles volunteer you will have the satisfaction of contributing to the hard-won accomplishments of our Achilles athletes. You will also be inspired by their courage and motivation, often in the face of very great obstacles.

Achilles Canada and its athletes are extremely grateful for the support of each dedicated volunteer. Your energy, drive and unwavering commitment continue to enable Achilles Canada to make a significant contribution to the overall well being of each of our athletes. The event would not be possible without our volunteers.

Thank you for your spirit of generosity and commitment to our athletes!
