Member of the Month

The Achilles International Chapter Athlete/Volunteer/Race Director of the Month is Alex Hentzschel. Back in 1989, Alex started as a volunteer guide for Achilles in Munich and then in the NYC Marathon for several years until his health took a turn…. At that point, Alex started running as an athlete with a disability…. while hospitalized for injuries sustained in a fall in 2011, he was thinking about something useful he could do….. and voilà! - Alex decided to create the Achilles Germany Hope & Possibility Run/Walk. the inaugural event was held on August 5th, 2012, and the second annual H&P was held this past July. Alex is unstoppable! We are so proud of him and so grateful for everything Alex has done to make the Achilles Germany Chapter so amazing! Please check out this video to see him in action!
