Fran’s Journey Begins..
Fran’s passion for sport has always been evident. From the age of 7, Fran could be found with a soccer ball under one arm and a football kit under the other. Now a former Arsenal Academy Player residing in Australia, Fran continues her deep passion and appreciation for women’s sport with a remarkable goal: to raise $500,000 for Women Sport Australia by becoming the first woman ever to complete a 1000km run from the Gold Coast to Sydney, all while dribbling a soccer ball.
Taking place over 32 days and covering a distance of 36kms per day, Fran’s destination and time frame is coordinated to land at the FIFA Women’s World Cup finals location in Sydney ANZ stadium.
