About Cam Calkoen
Cam (who was born with Cerebral Palsy) has gone from doubting his ability to run, to representing NZ in athletics, winning championships in New Zealand, Australia and Canada and now takes his winning attitude into diverse environments that encourage others to achieve their personal best.
From projects that enhance relations between people of the world through to continually pushing through personal, physical and emotional barriers, Cam ensures the life is ‘AWESOME’ indeed.
He assisted raising awareness in a considerable fund raising effort which raised $4 million to allow the YES Disability Resource Centre to be constructed on Auckland’s North Shore.
Cam was recognised as a Paul Harris Fellow in 2006 as a 21 year old and has been further twice recognised with Sapphire Pins.
His attitude is "By saying YES you are able to Dream Big & Achieve More".
