Fun Run Kailua-Kona Ironman World Championships

On the community side, Dr. Kym has been a proud sponsor and current board member of Girls on the Run, a running-based mentoring program for girls.  She also volunteers her time and talents to help athletes achieve peak performance at the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii, where she’s provided on-site ART services and medical triage for five years since 2005.  “When an athlete has worked so hard to get to Ironman – especially the World Championships in Kona – it’s super-gratifying when I can help them finish well,” says Dr. Kym.  “I remember an athlete who couldn’t run a step a few days before the race. We worked together and he got a little bit better every day, and he ended up finishing with tears of gratitude and a huge hug for me. Another girl I worked on couldn’t lift her arm or turn her head at all two days before the race, and then she ended up winning her age group and setting a new course record.”

Dr. Kym’s mission to help people achieve their dreams stems from her own personal passion for living life to the fullest.  She has a zest for life that keeps her and her family hopping.  In her down-time, Dr. Kym enjoys running along scenic trails in and around Flagstaff, and exploring, hiking in the woods, reading, and spending time with family She recently earned her pilot’s license and looks forward to exploring northern Arizona from the sky now, too.  You can follow Dr. Kym’s work and her adventures on Facebook and Twitter.  She’s happy to have you along for the ride.
