Help for Heroes supporting the 2018 Paralympic Inspiration Programme (PiP) for the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games

Help for Heroes worked alongside The British Paralympic Association (BPA) to run the 2018 Paralympic Inspiration Programme (PiP) for the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games. The Programme provided five military athletes with knowledge that will prepare them for a future Games experience as a selected athlete, as well as inspire and excite potential future Paralympians in their ambitions. The group travelled to PyeongChang to gain an understanding of the scale and scope of the Games and to give exposure to some of the unique aspects of a Games, including the Village, the media spotlight and mixed zone, and transport systems. There was a rigorous curriculum, with lessons about nutrition, media, anti-doping, competition planning and goal setting.

Athletes were nominated by their National Governing Body based on a number of criteria, including but not limited to being on a development pathway, with an anticipated performance trajectory for the 2020 or 2022 Paralympic Games.
