Achilles LA is a local branch of Achilles International. For more than twenty-five years, Achilles Los Angeles was among the forty Achilles chapters across the United States. The club became inactive in 2007. But in the fall of 2017, with the help of the founding LA chapter leader Jon Ross, Ed Gargiulo and Peter Sheehy teamed up to relaunch Achilles Los Angeles. In 2022, Ed and Peter passed the torch to Christina Swanson and Jake Simon, who are excited to be co-leaders of the LA Chapter.
