Kim Chambers is a record-setting marathon open water swimmer from New Zealand living in the San Francisco Bay area. A former ballerina, and rower at UC Berkeley, Kim discovered swimming just six years ago to rehabilitate a life-threatening leg injury. Her inspiring story is featured in the documentary KIM SWIMS.
Kim is a member of the Night Train Swimmers, which is a group of open-water swimmers dedicated to raising money for charity through ultra-distance swimming events around the world. Charities include Semper Fi Fund and Navy SEAL Foundation.
On May 5th 2017, Kim will join an international team of swimmers in an unprecedented swim from USA to Mexico, as an expression of kindness benefitting the Colibrí Center for Human Rights. The Pan-American Colibri Swim team includes 12 people from New Zealand, South Africa, Israel, Mexico and USA who have swum for a variety of peaceful, charitable and environmental issues during their careers.
