Achilles Track Club

Heart transplant recipient Donald Arthur has visited the Bronx Rotary Club on several occasions. He runs in marathons to help promote awareness of organ donation and the difference it can make in people's lives. He intends to run a marathon in all 50 states and had done 27 so far by the end of 2007. He is a member of the Achilles Track Club whose members all have some disability which they have overcome.

The Rotary Club of the Bronx has given grant money to the Achilles Track Club to help in promoting awareness of the need for organ donors.

NOTE: The Club was saddened by the passing of Donald Arthur in 2011.
