    10: Biker Gangs & Drug Addiction to helping Kids Heal & Grow // The Story of Joe Calendino

    10: Biker Gangs & Drug Addiction to helping Kids Heal & Grow // The Story of Joe Calendino

    Drugs, gangs, and violence represent the dark side of society and have taken many young lives on a destructive path.  Back in the early 80’s one of those lives was Joe Calendino.  Drug use started at age 14, involvement in gangs a year later, and by the time he left high school, Joe had a record of over 300 fights, according to his famed drama teacher.  
    Joe’s adult life became marked with time as a full patch Hell’s Angel and a full-blown drug addict, an addiction that almost led to his death in 2006.  Fortunately, from that day forward, events would transpire to transform Joe’s life for the better. 
    Through his lived experiences, Joe has the unique ability to connect with youth to educate, inspire, and mentor them to avoid the same path he took.  It is the reason why the Yo Bro Yo Girl Youth Initiative exists, and why its programs are so essential in today’s urban society, riddled by the perils of drugs, gangs and violence.

    Motorsport and TV fans know her as the first (and remains the only) woman to compete in a World Rally Car. Penny Mallory knows how to compete and beat the odds, but she also knows top performance requires even more than sacrifice and maximum commitment. It also takes heart, insight and the courage to keep going and the refusal to quit.

From competing in three marathons on three consecutive days to hell runners and triathlons, finding the courage to enter the boxing ring, and the physical resolve to conquer two of the world’s highest mountains. Penny is the author of ‘World Class Thinking, World Class Behaviour’.
