N Ireland ‘Mighty Man’ cycling for brain tumour research

Gary Millar, 54, of Broughshane, Northern Ireland is cycling 440km this month to raise funds for brain tumour research.

Piperjames McGowan of Mighty Men Western Cape said Gary — a cancer survivor himself — is a keen supporter of the Mighty Men movement, especially in South Africa.

An attorney in Broughshane, Gary told a local newspaper that chalking up 16km a day “is a fairly big ask for someone who is not a regular cyclist, and takes quite a bit of commitment, otherwise you very quickly get behind”.

“But it’s nothing compared to what someone living with cancer has to face,” he said.

“Times are tough economically but even donating the price of a coffee will make a massive difference when lots of other people do the same.”

He said he owes his life to cancer research and wants others to experience the same. He said his ride is also in honour of his late brother-in-law and a friend who died of brain tumours.

His fundraising website address is – bit.ly/gary274.
