"A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step." - Chinese Proverb
Keanne Cameron has been involved with Special Olympics Minnesota for over two decades. He started coaching when someone called and asked him to; Keanne never says no to an opportunity to teach or coach.
Keanne is the swimming coach for the South Region STARS team, but he has also coached teams of Special Olympic athletes at the national and international levels. Keanne has a unique ability to relate to and motivate the swimmers - many of whom have a fear of the water. He coaches athletes of all ages and teaches them much more than swimming; Keanne helps his athletes increase self-esteem and confidence.
Keanne believes his sole purpose in life is to bring joy and a better quality of life to children with mental and physical challenges and their families. He has impacted the lives of hundreds of athletes and it's all because he said "yes" to the call.
