While out at the Monkey Junction Walmart promoting Fran's Fans, Frances Weller made a promise that she would "turn a cartwheel' if all of the fans sold. She owned up to her promise later that night in the WECT newsroom.
Frances along with the assistance and encouragement of Zach Hunt, put her fears aside to learn to do a cartwheel. Zach showed her several times how to do the move before she gave it a try.
The delay in Fran's willingness to try the cartwheel allowed co-anchor Jon Evans to pull out his phone and capture the fun on video.
