The 33-year-old has epilepsy and has had a successful athletic career despite the affliction.

Rifle grad LaBaw running across state to raise awareness for epilepsy

RIFLE — Plenty of people have doubted how much Jenny LaBaw could do over the course of her lifetime. Now, the 33-year-old Rifle native and epileptic is showing just how much she can do for a purpose.
LaBaw, a 2000 graduate of Rifle High School and a former placer in the CrossFit Games finals, will begin the 500-mile “Move Mountains: A Run For Epilepsy” across Colorado on Sept. 19.
The run will go from the southern border of Colorado near Durango to the southern border of Wyoming in an effort to raise awareness for epilepsy, a brain disorder that forces a person to have repeated and involuntary seizures or convulsions.
