Blind teenager takes on Tough Mudder Obstacle Course Race
Without the visual cues, blind teenager Azeem Amir will be the youngest person to attempt Tough Mudder, a gruelling 12-mile obstacle course. The seventeen year-old will be aided by his former Physical Education (PE) teacher along the obstacle course.
“Being born with a very severe eye condition and still having always participated in mainstream education, nothing has ever stopped me from achieving my ambitions,” said Azeem Amir.
The highly spirited teenager from Manchester in England, is taking on the Tough Mudder race to show people anything is possible.
Amir has already completed a 10km event but wanted progress and remembered his former PE teacher, Sam Dainty, talking about the Tough Mudder event and decided to register for it.
He will be the youngest blind person to ever take part in the race and will tackle the 12-mile challenge to raise money for Manchester Royal Eye Hospital.
