Gary explained: “MND holds a very special place in my heart as three people who were very close to me, my granny Martha Gilmore, my best friend’s dad Bobby McCullough and a former work colleague Tommy Wharry, all have died of this terrible cruel disease.
"My personal trainer Jack Snoddy, from Just Active gym, Larne, helped facilitate this success by making sure I was fit enough physically. Jack encouraged me to do an extra 1,000 squats – in total I completed 6,000.”
Having raised £1,620, he added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every member of the community that has donated during this tough economic period.
"I want to take this time to highlight the significant donations that Larne Tech Old Boys Club members made and also Graham Steelworks and Engineering Ltd. If anyone still wishes to donate, you can do so up until the last week of December at Inver Garden Centre or Just Active gym."
The charity aims to provide the best possible support to people living with MND, their families and carers. Run entirely by volunteers, its services include trained Association Visitors, organising informal support meetings and providing advice and signpost to other services.
