Kim James doing Swansea Ironman 70.3 for 'Our Amy'

Donation protected

On the 14th July 2024, Kim is taking on Swansea Ironman 70.3 to fundraise and raise awareness for The 'Our Amy' Foundation.


Since signing up in September last year, Kim has trained constantly for this challenge, learning how to swim and hadn't ridden a road bike until November last year


She has taken on some other challenges along the way including half marathon, and two sprint triathlons! 9 weeks to go until she faces her biggest physical challenge! we are all behind you Kim



We are in the early stages of starting up this foundation.



In July of 2022 we sadly lost Our Amy.



Since the day she passed away, all who knew Amy are still struggling to come to terms with the devastating loss. Amy was a mother, daughter, sister, sister-in-law, auntie, niece, cousin and friend to many. She will never ever be forgotten and to honour her memory we have decided to create a foundation in her name.



As Amy's family and friends we have lots of ideas of how to hopefully help and support those who have been affected by a similar loss.



Like many others, Amy battled with her mental health from a young age. She overcame a lot of struggles.



Amy absolutely loved keeping fit. Everyone who knew and loved Amy knew that the gym was her happy place, she was the best version of herself when she was training.



Before she passed, Amy was about to enter her second-year degree in university to qualify as a mental health nurse. She always said that she knew how those with mental health issues felt so she wanted to make a career for herself helping those with the same struggles that she had.



We would like to start up this foundation with the ultimate aim being to support families locally that have been affected by losing a loved one to suicide.



This is a sensitive subject that probably isn't spoken about openly enough. So many struggle with their mental health one way or another, and in starting up this foundation our hope is that we can help those who have been effected in the same way that we have ❤ which we know is what Amy would have wanted ✨️️
