Gary has in recent years raised approx £85000 for McMillan cancer research doing various events. Some include cycling through Brazil, a trek through New Zealand, climbing kilimanjaro and running from lands end to John o' groats in 27 days as well as a number of times doing the coast to coast. Gary is an inspiration to all that knows him and all his friends and family are so proud of him. Gary has 2 small boys Alfie 6 and Beau 3 and is married to Susan. Gary got into these charitable events after the death of his father to cancer and received an award last year from McMillan for all his efforts. He is planning to do the Cumbrian run in October and is trying to encourage 100 people to do it to celebrate McMillan's centenary year.
