‘I’m not running a marathon for Breast Cancer Now because I’d pass out. I’m driving a very fast car instead.’
Car enthusiast, Gary Monaghan, has driven a very fast car through the hairpin bends of Col de Turini to raise as much money as he can for Breast Cancer Now.
Many courageous people have swam lakes, ran marathons and done mini triathlons in order to raise money for charity, however, Gary decided to do things a little different. Admitting he would pass out if he was to run a marathon, he set himself the challenge of driving a fast car along beautiful, but dangerous roads – something he loves to do.
‘I don’t feel guilty about doing something I love to raise funds, there are people who haven’t done anything. If I was to ask my dad, who died of cancer, what I should do, he would have said this.’
Many people may think this sounds easy, and certainly not as hard as lengths others have gone to. That said, Gary Monaghan welcomed anyone to keep up with him.
‘If we can kill this awful disease in our lifetimes, we give some of our kids, who will undoubtedly suffer, a chance.’
Here at Cosmetic Surgery Partners, we pride ourselves on our charitable work and we were delighted to sponsor Gary on his journey for a fantastic cause. We loved hearing the updates and he sent some fantastic images of places he passed through en route.’
