For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K


The Dwarf Athletic Association of Canada's (DAAC) purpose is to relieve conditions associated with a disability by providing athletic and recreational programs to support the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of children and adults with dwarfism. Like other groups of disabled people, many of the barriers and obstacles faced by individuals with dwarfism are put in place by society, even before any of the potential medical complications of dwarfism are considered. These include barriers to participating in publicly available sports activities that promote health and well-being. DAAC’s programming removes barriers and obstacles to participation by delivering sports activities whereby individuals with dwarfism can train, play, and compete in an equitable, inclusive and accessible environment. In addition, as it is often difficult for many average height individuals to understand the challenges a person with dwarfism faces, DAAC provides a safe space through sports for individuals with dwarfism and their families with a goal of providing social rehabilitation to those who may from time to time feel isolated and marginalized by living in an average-sized world.
