Miles For Miles
Why we need your help
This year, we're riding to beat heartbreak from inherited heart conditions.
As Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 2019 Charity of the Year, every penny raised by British Heart Foundation riders will go towards vital research into inherited heart conditions, funded by the Miles Frost Fund.
Team Miles for Miles, led by Wilfred and George Frost, will be joining hundreds of BHF riders on 4 August 2019 to help raise funds in memory of their brother, Miles.
The Miles Frost Fund was set up in association with the BHF in February 2016 in memory of Miles Frost, who died suddenly of an inherited heart condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) while jogging near his family home in July 2015.
The Fund has already raised an incredible £1.5 million, which has helped fund 13 specialist inherited cardiac condition clinics across the UK to run genetic testing for families affected by inherited heart conditions. More than 270 people have received testing through the services from October 2017 to March 2018, with more than 20 already testing positive for the gene that could cause HCM.
But there is still more work to do.
Every week in the UK, 12 people aged under 35 die from an undiagnosed inherited heart condition. Miles was just 31.
The money raised from the partnership with the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 will further this work by funding research in to improving the diagnosis and treatment of deadly inherited heart conditions, including HCM.
"Summer 2019 will mark four years without Miles. It will be tiring and challenging, but Miles would be so pleased with what we have already achieved in his name through The Miles Frost Fund. Although Miles hated cycling, he would be so very proud that we are continuing our fight by becoming the Charity of the Year for 2019’s Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100." - Wilfred Frost
