At the beginning of 2018 we were honoured to have FIONA OAKES as a guest speaker for our Vegan Celebration event in the Gallery Cafe. An all-round super-woman, Fiona is a world record marathon runner, vegan activist, manager of Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary.

Due to her many achievements, the award-winning director Keegan Kuhn (Cowspiracy, What The Health) and executive producer James Cromwell released the documentary 'Running For Good'.

This documentary follows Fiona in her attempt not only to set a new global record in endurance racing, but to compete in the “toughest footrace on earth,” the Marathon Des Sables, a 250km race through the Sahara Desert.
Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as a unique endurance runner. She is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents, and the north pole, in both cumulative and elapsed time. Fiona’s achievements are made even more astounding due to the fact that she was told 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. The process was agonizing, the rehab worse, the records she’s gone on to set even more astounding.

With overcoming her own adversity, 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.

This screening will start at 7pm
