Project Title: World Dwarf Games Training 
Award: £5,000

 

The World Dwarf Games Training programme provides a variety of sporting activities for children aged 8-16 and adults aged 16-40 with dwarfism. Competing in sport is never going to be easy or fair when you are half the size of your peers and people with dwarfism suffer greatly with health issues that affect the heart.

This innovative and inspirational training programme will provide the opportunity to join GB Team Scotland at the 8th World Dwarf Games 2021 in Cologne Germany, whilst at the same time offering a boost of confidence and heart health for people across Scotland.

The Heart Research UK Healthy Heart team will capture the impact on dads and male carers of competitors by offering free Healthy Heart checks.
