In one month, Paralympic wheelchair racer Anne Wafula Strike will become the first person in Europe ever to attempt the 'Tough Mudder' challenge in a wheelchair.
Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by the Special Forces. The obstacles include such feats as crossing through burning firewood, ice baths, and dangling 10,000 volt electric wires.
Anne wants to complete the challenge to raise money for her own charity, the Olympia Wafula Foundation, and also AbleChildAfrica, which aims to promote the realisation of equal rights for disabled children and their families in Africa.
