Kevin said:

"Kim would regularly cycle the roads around Buckinghamshire.

"She took part in many national events raising money for her favoured charity, Diabetes UK, including our own local, Tour De Vale.

"As a type 1 diabetic, she was determined to not let it impact her life.

"She was also a keen runner and recently had been pushing her pace on her 5km runs, and was getting stronger. She had set herself a goal to complete a 10km run by the end of April."

On Friday night, after a really positive day and good conversions with her family, she decided to pursue her 10km run.

Sadly; she didn't come home.

The family are now asking locals to honour Kim's memory in May by completing a 10km activity.

Kevin continued:

"This could be running, walking, riding, hiking - anything really; individually or as a team relay and could be done in one go or over a number of days.

"Kim was an effervescent, bubbly, radiant young lady who impacted all those fortunate to be in her company. She will be remembered for her positivity and determination to overcome all the challenges she faced.

"With that in mind, we ask you that, during your 10km challenge, to post pictures of yourselves on social media and use the following hashtag: #unitedwedidkims10km"

They are also asking people who want to get involved to donate to diabetes UK.
