I’ve been affected by cancer on a personal, professional, familial and community level. The Tour de Pier is the perfect chance for me to combine my love of athletics with my belief that everyone should support charitable causes. This event will be a great celebration – not just a chance to remember, but to energetically move forward to help anyone in need.” – Craig Hummer
