Lindsy James, Founder and Director of the Doncaster-based children’s and young peoples’ charity Active Fusion has dedicated 24 years of her professional career inspiring young people to ‘be the best they can be’ through sport and physical activity.  Her career spans several sectors including education, charitable and sport.  

Lindsy is passionate about improving the physical health, mental wellbeing and life chances of our current and future generations of children and young people.   

She is the ultimate inspiring female role model, always leading by example.  Lindsy is often found pushing her own sporting limits to demonstrate that anything is possible.  Breaking the Guinness World Record in 2016 for the fastest women pushing a pram and baby over the half marathon distance.  She defies many barriers, showing that age, running a successful growing charity and being a parent should not define what you can achieve in life.   

Lindsy represents the Great British Age Group Team (vet 45) in the Duathlon becoming double World Champion in 2021, 2022 and 2023, European silver medalist in 2022 and 2023 and is the current English National Champion.  

Did we mention Lindsy is Rotherham born and bred? Why does that matter? Because she is down to earth, proud, straight talking and above all super friendly.

11:00 – 11:45, Rotherham Minster.
