It was in the year 2011 a woman named Jenny Labaw stunned many at the Reebok CrossFit Games by finishing sixth in the event and she caught the attention of many there. Jenny Labaw in that event proved many that she was the sixth fittest woman in the world. It is important to note that she started to train seriously just seven months prior to the event and did superbly.

What stood out was her determination to succeed and her athletic background helped her a huge extent. The sad and shocking piece of information about this Jenny Labaw is she had epilepsy when she was just eight years and did not reveal it to anybody in 2011. It must be noted that in the year 2015 when she was driving to her home in Colarado in USA she wanted to run for epilepsy and she informed about this to her boyfriend Marcus and surprised him.

The date 19th of September 2015 would ever be etched in the memory of Jenny Labaw because on that day she ran 500 miles from New Mexico border to Wyoming border and passed through Rocky Mountains of Colarado. The great piece of news is she got $ 52000 from her run and donated the entire amount to the Epilepsy Foundation of America.

It is now said that one year anniversary of that 500 mile run was held on 19th October 2016. It is superb to note that there were 16 clients of hers supporting her effort of ‘’Move Mountains’’ at her Oroville residence.
It is now said that Jenny Labaw wants to create awareness against epilepsy and wants more epilepsy affected people to know that they are not alone fighting this epilepsy. Great effort!!
