“You never know without trying”

Nickname: Timms
Age: 21
Hometown: Calgary, Alberta

Amanda sustained a  T6 Spinal Cord Injury a Fernie ski
resort on February 6th 2011. Since then she has been working hard to embrace adventure each and every day and inspire others to do the same.  Surfing is one of her favorite pastimes and Amanda likes to  put herself in situations in which she has to struggle to overcome,  physically or mentally. The person who inspires her the most is her brother, Brennan Timm. “he won’t allow me to be anything but the best I can and always pushes me to exceed my limits”.

Since we met Amanda in August 2011 she has inspired us  with her relaxed and  fearless nature:

“Engaging in adventure is the only way to break barriers in an exciting, thrilling,
and sometimes frightening way. Everyday is a new adventure-
it allows me to grow stronger and wiser in ways I never thought
possible. Engaging in Adventure allows me to feel like I’m whole and that
there is nothing different about me than everyone else.

“My injury changed my perspective by opening me up to
whole new world that I never even knew existed. It them taught me
that people  set limits for themselves and
others throughout their lives. It is now my goal to prove to everyone there are no limits for

“My goal is to try all activities out there- I don’t ever want to wish that I should have done something when I had the chance. Every moment
should be a memorable instant.”
