EVENT: Tough Mudder Virginia 2017
The Half Mudder is a team-oriented 5-6 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Tough Mudder puts camaraderie over finisher rankings and is not a timed race but a team challenge that allows participants to experience exhilarating, yet safe, world-class obstacles they won't find anywhere else.
I am running Tough Mudder in honor of my sister who has had Type 1 diabetes since 3 months old. In spite of the obstacles she has faced she is now in her mid-30s with 3 beautiful kids and a handsome grandson, Diabetes has not overcome her, she has overcome diabetes!
I only hope to conqueror the obstacles I am faced with while running the Tough Mudder and raising money in an effort to find a cure for diabetes with as much grace as her. I am running the Tough Mudder through the American Diabetes Association not only for her but for everyone out there also living life with any type of diabetes. One in every 10 adluts have diabetes in America and this number is expected to double by the year 2050. With your donation you can contribute to the prevention and cure of diabetes.
