We’re just blown away by the support and comments that we’re getting. Here are just some examples of amazing support that we received today:
Well done on undertaking such a great effort. I thought you might like to take a look at this www.stuartmangan.org website. I ran the marathon to raise funds for Stuart’s care back in 2009. Unfortunately, Stuart’s break was at C2 and he needed a ventilator and he died in Aug 09 following an infection due to the ventilator.
Although this was a very sad outcome for Stuart and his family, I thought the website might be helpful in terms of how the family move forward in raising funds etc. He was an amazing guy who really coped well with his new life circumstances considering what had happened and how active and full his life was before the accident. BBC3 made a programme about him and there is stuff linked into YouTube from the website.
There are also contact details there, which I am sure Brian or his family could use if they wanted to speak to people who have gone through this. The Mangans are a lovely family.
I am happy to pledge you £250 for your cycle.
Good luck and well done for doing such a great thing to help him.
£20 from me and any chocolates you want for the team. How about a couple box of Lindor filled eggs? I am assuming you have a support crew with you?
What an amazing thing to do for such a lovely cause.
Do you want coverage? I could try to get something in the British News Round up on Cycling Weekly website?
Micheal Harrington sent you $20.00 AUD
Good man Mick, you must have improved the fitness levels since your Edinburgh days.
Kenneth Frain sent you £50.00
Best of luck with the cycle. Extremely impressive goal and wish Brain all the best. I won’t be home in Ballagh for Easter but wish everyone a safe journey. Kenneth
€200 donated by Mark McNulty’s uncle, Conor McMenamin, to Mark & Shane.
Many thanks to everyone in Ballybofey & Stranorlar Golf Club for donating so generously this evening to Mark.
We have emails coming from Australia, New York, Kansas, Madrid, everywhere. People are amazing. Please keep the donations coming. Our cyclists are by no means ‘cyclists’; they are footballers first and foremost and are training hard for this very worthy cause. In order to take part, most of the cyclists are taking a week’s unpaid leave from work.
