In 2004, Achilles International launched the Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. This innovative program was created to adapt to the specific needs of injured veterans and provide a pathway back into exercise, sports, and personal independence. Over the weekend, AmeriVet Securities, Inc. partnered with Brighthouse Financial to support these incredible veteran athletes as they participated in the 2021 #NewYorkCityMarathon.
The New York City Marathon has been hosting the largest field of handcycle participants worldwide for many years, and this year was no exception. Congratulations to all the Freedom Team participants, and thank you #AchillesInternational for letting us share this experience with you.
