Coast2Coast-4,600 kms on horseback

ride4acure in 2011 will see 20 year-old Esther Luxford-Matthews saddle up and ride her horses over over 4,600 kilometers - coast to coast, across four states and in 97 days. Esther leaves Crescent Head (20kms east of Kempsey in NSW) on 2 May and arrives in Perth, WA on 6 August 2011. They will raise funds and awareness of adolescent and young adult melanoma in schools and communities en route. Melanoma tragically took Hannah, Esther's sister, at the age of 20 in 2008.

Donations raised for the Hannah Rose Melanoma Fund support vital research into the prevention and treatment of melanoma led by Hannah's doctor, Associate Professor Grant McArthur, at Peter Mac in Melbourne, Australia.
