Charity of the Year
The Miles Frost Fund in association with the British Heart Foundation
Every week in the UK 12 people aged 35 and under die of an undiagnosed heart condition. Miles Frost was 31.
On 19 July 2015, Miles went for a run and never came back.
An inherited heart condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) took his life without warning. In a moment, his family lost their kind and generous ‘leader of the pack’.
Miles’ death devastated his family and friends. And it was made all the more painful when they were told Miles probably inherited the condition from his father, Sir David Frost. Clinical and genetic tests are available to identify those at risk of HCM, but Miles was never tested.
The BHF estimates that up to 620,000 people across the UK could be living with a faulty gene that puts them at risk of a life-threatening inherited heart condition, that’s 1 in 6 people.
Summer 2019 will mark four years without Miles and, alongside his brothers, Wilf and George, everyone who rides for the British Heart Foundation will be helping to fund vital research into inherited heart conditions.
