Cam Calkoen

Cam Calkoen's cup is definitely half full and there's not much stopping this guy from achieving his dreams. Born with cerebral palsy Cam pushed through his physical limitations and set his own goals to represent New Zealand in athletics. From there he took his winning attitude into environments that encourage others to achieve their personal best. From projects that enhance relations amongst people of the world, through to continually pushing through personal, physical and emotional barriers, Cam ensures each day is lived to the max. In 2006 at the age of 21, Cam became one of the youngest recipients worldwide of a Paul Harris Fellowship from Rotary. He founded the Carabiner Mentoring programme for people with disabilities and today Cam motivates people from all backgrounds to dream BIG, because with big dreams comes a big life.
