NO MATTER WHERE YOU'RE FROM. YOUR DREAMS ARE VALID.
You deserve opportunities worthy of your promise. Whoever you are. Wherever you come from. Whatever your background.
We're a non-profit social enterprise based in the UK working across the globe to build sports science, nutrition and medicine capacity through locally-driven empowerment to ensure sporting talent is rewarded regardless of where you're from, what colour you are, what religion you are, if you are straight or gay, poor or rich - if you've got the talent to the make it to the top, nothing should stand in your way.
We're working day and night to make sure sportspeople from some of the most disadvantaged communities in the world have got the support they need to squeeze out every last drop of their potential so that global sport can rise up to live out the true meaning of its values, so that no matter who you are or where you come from, your dreams and aspirations can be realised; that your dreams are valid.
Come join our movement to #MakeSportFairer!
We want to highlight that sportspeople ALL over the world and from every culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status ALL harbour dreams in sport and are deserving of the same support and opportunities as anyone else.
At Harper Performance CIC, we hold this truth to be self-evident, but with your help, we want to make some REAL noise and show the world of sport that no matter your background, no matter where you're from, that our aspirations in sport unite us all; that we all deserve a 'sporting chance' to make it to the top.
Through this campaign, we're going to showcase and celebrate the sporting dreams of real people, just like you, from every corner of the planet, from every culture and every background who want to achieve something in sport. You don't have to be the next Usain Bolt or Messi to take part, if you ever dream of achieving anything in sport, then we want to hear from you!
Simple - share your dream with us via photo or video!
We need your photos (and/or videos), holding up a sign that simply says; "I DREAM OF... (then add your sporting dream)" plus the hashtag #MyDreamsAreValid which we will combine to create an online virtual wall of dreams here on our website and celebrate through a series of videos we'll be editing throughout the campaign and posting across social media. You can send your submission to us directly via email or WeTransfer or you can post it on your social media (Twitter - @HarperPerform or Instagram - @HarperPerformance), tag us and use the hashtags #MyDreamsAreValid and #MakingSportFairer.
For the campaign to be a success, we need to collect photos and videos from every corner of the globe, from every culture and from every age group and lots of them - we want to tell the world YOUR sporting dreams are just as valid as anyone else's. So once you've sent us your photo (and/or video), then please rally your friends and team-mates together, your training partners, your colleagues, your peers, your local sports clubs to do the same - make sure you share the campaign on your social media and help spread it across the world!

We're using the 'My Dreams Are Valid' Campaign to advocate for REAL change in sport!
We are totally committed to playing our part in transforming global sport so that aspiring sportspeople born anywhere in the world can access the support they need to realise their full potential. This campaign is just the latest chance we have to make sure those at the top of our governing bodies, sponsors and politicians understand that sport is not just the privileged few, its for everyone, whoever they are, wherever they come from and whatever their background. We ALL have dreams and deserve opportunities worthy of our promise. For sport to remain relevant in an ever-changing world and continue to shine brightly as a beacon for fairness and equality in our societies, more must be done to level the playing field, provide opportunities and re-open its doors to the global masses.
Our work in democratising the world of sports science, sports nutrition and sports medicine is just one piece of the puzzle, one we take incredibly seriously, but it costs money and requires a shift in narrative from everyone connected to sport. Through advocacy campaigns like the 'My Dreams Are Valid' campaign, we can take our message, our story, our vision and YOUR DREAMS to an ever growing audience and secure the support we need to realise our mission to #MakeSportFairer.
PLEASE DON'T POST YOUR PHOTO / VIDEO TO SOCIAL MEDIA BEFORE 1ST MAY 2019 But feel free to send it to us via email / WeTransfer and we will happily share it during the campaign.
