Olympic Rowing Star Steps up for Camp Quality

Juliette Haigh Juliette Haigh Juliette Haigh

Three-time world rowing champion Juliette Haigh has stepped up to support a charity dedicated to bringing fun, hope and happiness to children living with cancer.

Winner of a bronze medal in the women’s coxless pair at the London Olympics, Juliette has accepted an invitation to be the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Ambassador for Camp Quality New Zealand.

Camp Quality New Zealand (CQNZ) is a not-for-profit volunteer organisation, established 28 years ago, which provides a range of programmes and year-round support across New Zealand for more than 300 children, aged 5-16, with cancer.

After more than 15 years in the sport, Juliette decided to quit rowing late last year after an international career spanning nine years, three World Championship coxless pairs titles, five Rowing World Cup gold medals and an Olympic bronze.
