Crazy for a Cause

Growing up in England Frances Stringfellow used to watch the London Marathon and used to think the competitors were “crazy” to run it.

Come April 24, Frances - or Frankie as she is known to her friends - will be able to class herself as “crazy” as she takes on the 42.195km race.

Now living in the Mount, the Tauranga Hospital doctor says she will run the marathon to help raise funds for the New Zealand Cancer Society.

“I guess with my job we see cancer every day and you see how much it affects people. I'm really passionate about running and I just wanted to use it in a way that I thought would be as helpful as possible for some sort of cause like the New Zealand Cancer Society.

“I just thought if I could do something, it might not be much, but if I could do something for these people that's using something I enjoy, then hey that's cool.”
