Kim is an inspirational figure, combining a caring vocation as a nurse in the premature baby unit at the local hospital with spending what spare time she has helping others.
Over the years, she has run marathons, half-marathons and taken part in the Race for Life. Kim has participated in the Great North Run and the London Marathon. On each of these occasions, she has taken part in order to raise money for good causes - Parkinsons, Cancer Relief, Breast Cancer Awareness, etc. etc.
When Kim has needed to raise funds for her participation in these events (e.g. the London Marathon), she has put on events such as Bring and Buys, Coffee Mornings, etc. In fact, we always say if you need to raise money for a good cause - speak to Kim.
Kim is remarkable inasmuch as she is a (very fit, attractive) grandmother. She undertakes punishing training regimes to take part in her marathons.
Kim is a tireless worker who seems to care about everyone, particularly those in need. Despite the long shifts she undertakes at the hospital, she helps her elderly in-laws, carries out the aforementioned fundraising and always has time for a chat and a smile. Kim is the kindest, most generous person I know and a worthy nominee for carrying the torch on behalf of the community.
Knowing Kim, she would - in equal measure - be thrilled, humbled and proud to be chosen to carry the Olympic Torch. In fact she would -quite wrongly - look upon herself as being undeserving of such an honour.
