Listen: Sam and Duncan chat with Emily Miers
Last year, Emily Miers and her father made history as the first father-and-daughter combination to ever achieve a successful solo English Channel crossing, from England to France.
Departing in the dead of night, Emily managed to cross the Channel in ten hours and fifty-one minutes, in support of the Children’s Cancer Institute.
Emily lost her older sister Sarah to a brain tumour in 1997, and shared with Sam and Duncan why raising awareness and funds through a swim like this was so important to her family.
