In 2019, 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, raising awareness and funds after losing her sister to a brain tumour.
