This Irishman is walking around the world with a message

Have you heard about the man walking around the world?

Some people use their darkest moments to do great things in life and Tony Mangan from Dublin, Ireland is certainly one of those people.

Walking around the world

Tony is walking around the world to spread awareness for cancer with the message that “Life is precious, early checking saves lives”.

Having lost his mother to cancer in 2013, the Irishman Tony is now using this loss as a motivating factor behind the walk.

Here is an update from Tony’s social media.

“I just crossed into Latvia and after a hot dusty morning I am in search of a shave. So far, I have finished walking across England, Holland, Gemany, Poland, Lithuania. Latvia is my sixth countr. Although, I made a start on Russia when I completed my walk across Kaliningrad state.


Now for another former USSR republic, Latvia. I expect to be here for only a few days and plan to cross to Russia on Tuesday evening, or Wednesday. Ps my Russian route is as far as Khyagat, about 6,000km or half way across the country. From there it is exactly 1,000 km South through Mongolia as far as China! Hope you can stay for the fun!”
