20986(UK) Vegan with one kneecap in marathon bid to save animal farm
- Aug 20, 2013A RECORD-BREAKING marathon runner dubbed 'superwoman' by her peers is
facing a new type of fight – to keep her beloved animal farm afloat.
Fiona Oakes, 43, is the owner of Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary,
which has stables in both Tillingham and Asheldham and takes in
unwanted animals from all over Essex.
So Fiona, a vegan who has taken on some of the world's most extreme
marathons, despite only having one kneecap, plans to run another six
gruelling challenges by the end of the year to boost the charity's
coffers, and is appealing to the public for help.
