Pictured at The Kelpies is Bro Graham McIntyre of Kennoway Purple Heroes LOL 239. He took part in the Home Fund Cycle Run in a specially adapted bike, for Graham has been paraplegic since teenage, following a car accident in 1998. Graham was just 18 and travelling as a passenger when tragedy struck, resulting in spinal injuries and the loss of all sensation from the waist down. Hospitalised for a year in Glasgow Southern General with massive internal injuries, treatment led to the removal of his spleen and one kidney. Twenty years later, Graham has not merely adjusted to life in a wheelchair, but is a competitive paraplegic sportsman and a member of the famous ‘Fife Flyers’ of No 64 District LOL. Now he is aiming to purchase a new racing wheelchair with the help of Disability Sports Fife so that he can achieve his personal goal of competing in the London Marathon and other endurance events.
