12 Half’s in 12 Months
FryerMiles are continuing to support The Institute of Cancer Research in 2020
As some of you will remember, Leo took on a massive challenge in 2019 when he decided to run the London Marathon in support of The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR).
Having successfully completed his challenge, he has decided to continue his fundraising efforts for the same cause by completing “12 Half’s in 12 Months” in 2020.
Leo will be running one Half Marathon per month (listed below) for the course of 2020, which will take some serious dedication and determination, but he is completely committed to completing the challenge for a cause that is very close to his heart.

Because Leo, has, like too many others, witnessed first-hand the devastating effect that a cancer diagnosis can have.
Leo’s mum has bravely fought her own battle against cancer, and thankfully is now in remission – thanks to the amazing research and advances that have been made by organisations like ICR.
Although Leo’s mum’s battle had a happy ending, sadly not everyone is as lucky – a close friend of Leo’s passed away on Thursday 13th September 2018 having been diagnosed with terminal cancer and following a previous battle with the illness. Vicky was 37 years old and an inspiration, she lived a full life, full of amazing times with her husband Daniel, family and friends and did as much charity work as she could.
FryerMiles hope to be able to do their share in memory of Vicky and so many others that fought courageously but sadly lost their fight against cancer. ICR is a charity very close to their hearts and they are passionate about raising vital funds for this very worthy cause so that so many more people can fight their battle, and win.
Help us make a difference
The research undertaken at The Institute of Cancer Research is expanding knowledge about this devastating disease and changing the way it is treated. They rely heavily on fundraising and the generosity of others, so any donation you can make will support them on their journey to making the discoveries that will, one day, beat cancer for good.
A message from Leo
The London Marathon was tough (and certainly tougher than expected!) but I was so proud to present ICR with our fundraising cheque for £5020.07 that it immediately inspired me to look for another challenge, so that I could continue to support them.
I’m excited to embark on “12 Half’s in 12 Months” and am grateful for any donations made to help me on my way.
Thank you so much in advance for your continued support!
