Dad and Daughter team to Ride4Research

Father and daughter duo, Jeremy and Iesha Humber from Snake Valley, have taken up the challenge to start 2017 with a fundraising adventure for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute. They will be riding over 1400kms in 21 days, around Tasmania.

The pair has a love for cycling and is aiming to raise $12,000.00 for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute.

12 years old year old Iesha Humber said, “I like to ride my bicycle, I love mountain bike riding, road and track racing, and going on cycle touring camping holidays.”

“My Dad Jeremy and I are planning to cycle around Tasmania to raise funds for cancer research in summer school holidays. We are hoping that people will donate to fund vital research but also help motivate us through unpredictable wet and windy weather conditions and the dreaded mountainous terrain.” she said

The Humber’s will start the ride in Devonport, before heading to Cradle Mountain, down the West Coast, then to Hobart and up the East Coast back to Devonport. The pair will be making a daily video diary and cycling tour guide of their trip.

As a non-government funded organisation, the Institute relies on the generous support and effort of the people like the Humber’s, to continue our work. For over 20 years, we have worked hand in hand with our community who are passionate about fighting cancer through research. With your support, our research into more effective ways to diagnose and treat cancer can continue, creating better outcomes for those diagnosed along with their friends and families.

Jeremy Humber said “I’m very proud that my daughter and I can tackle this challenge together and raise funds for Cancer Research.”

Please get behind Jeremy and Iesha, donate, and follow their Tasmanian cycling adventure. 100% of all funds raised go to Cancer Research. Travel expenses will be paid by generous sponsors.
