Running For Good; Documentary Screening
Monday Oct. 7th: 7pm McMunn
A documentary following world record marathon runner Fiona Oakes in her attempt to compete in the “toughest footrace on earth,” the Marathon Des Sables, a 250km race through the Sahara Desert. At age 14 that she would never walk properly, let alone ever run. She would undergo more than 17 radical knee surgeries which ultimately led to having her entire right kneecap removed. Fiona’s true drive to achieve incredible feats of speed and human endurance are motivated by a deep desire to raise awareness for the plight of animals. Her achievements help fund a 450+ animal sanctuary that she takes care of every day.
