Understanding Dwarfism, an education program, provides literature and speakers to local communities. Creator Jimmy Korpia of Kingston, NY developed the web based program to educate the public about what dwarfism is, stereotypes, answers to most common questions, and discussion boards.

LPA Mohawk Valley Chapter is Seamus' local chapter. Chapters are created based on regions and consist of families who have little people in them. They allow family and friends to come together for support, activities, and fundraising events. The non for profit organization is currently raising money to host a LPA Regional in the Fall for nearly 3,000 people. Camenga Racing will be selling stickers, wrist bands, and t shirts for these two organizations at all special appearances, and at the track.
Camenga Racing is proud to do our part in spreading the word about dwarfism across the northeast. Be sure to check out our racing site at www.camengaracing.webs.com for scheduled events in supporting Seamus Camenga, and Little people across the nation.
A Message from Camenga Racing
The new year brought new ideas, and changes for the Camenga Racing program! Dana will be racing at Utica Rome Speedway in the pro stock division! In addition to our current sponsors, Dana will be racing for Dwarfism Awareness. Dwarfism is a skeletal dysphasia that effects 1 in 10,000 children. There are over 200 different forms of dwarfism. Dana's nephew, Seamus Camenga, has achondroplasia which is the most common form of dwarfism. Most people are familiar with the term "Little People" as in the show, "Little People Big World."
