At our 20th Anniversary last month we gave out our first Achilles Honorary Lifetime Membership Awards.
The recipients (pictured left to right) were members Nick Gleeson and Charlie McConnell who were two of our first members with disability to join Achilles Sydney. They have both contributed enormously to the club over the years as well as representing Achilles at a vast range of events and challenges. They inspire our new members and our volunteers with their boundless enthusiasm and can-do attitudes.
Also recognised was volunteer of over a decade, Michael Levy. Michael is a behind the scenes star regularly driving members to training, going for training walks, swims, bike rides and runs outside of Sunday training. And of course is a regular smiling face at training. He is a fantastic guide and very valued by all of our members and volunteers.
Well done Nick, Charlie and Michael. The club wouldn't be the same without you #GoAchilles.
Our mission is to enable people from all walks of life, including those with physical impairments, to enjoy the health giving benefits of walking and running in a supportive, social and encouraging environment.
