Past Swims

On September 2nd 2014, at great personal risk, Kimberley became the 6th person in history to complete the Oceans Seven challenge. In August 2015, Kimberley set a new world record becoming the first woman to swim 30 miles from the Farallon Islands, known to be the largest concentration of great white sharks in the world. In September 2016, Kim attempted a non-stop 93 mile swim from Sacramento to Tiburon to raise funds and awareness for Warrior Canine Connection. However after swimming  24 hours 17 minutes and covering a distance of 54 miles, sustained 30 knot winds rendered it unsafe for swimmer and crew to continue.
