Joe and Christine stay close to home and speak to the one and only Joe Sorbanelli. It's interesting to learn that a guy can start his running career by running his first "marathon" on a treadmill at a gym while watching the NYC Marathon on television. WAIT! WHAT?!
Three years later Joe started the New Jersey chapter of Achilles International in 2017. Join us as we listen to Joe's eternal optimism and "can do" spirit and understand why he started the chapter and guides Achilles' athletes.
In 2019 the New Jersey chapter held their first Hope and Possibilities race. This year they are hosting the 2020 virtual race on September 13, 2020 sponsored by U-Haul.
Joe is such a great guy, and guide! In 2019 he was the recipient of the Achilles International Guide of the Year award.
