Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10-12 mile military style obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Gwen is part of the charity team raising donations and awareness for the American Diabetes Association. Gwen has been living with Type I (juvenile) diabetes since she was 10, and through this campaign she aims to help others receive the same support and medical care that she has been lucky enough to receive. The ADA is a nonprofit organization that works to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. The ADA funds research, offers advice and support for those affected by the disease, and advocates at every level--from schools to congress--on behalf of those denied their rights because of diabetes.
