Yorkshire Cancer Research and Leeds United.

Marching on Cancer. Together.

We are proud to be the official charity partner of Leeds United.

We are working with the club to raise awareness of cancer risk factors, symptoms and screening, and to celebrate the vital research that is taking place across the region.

Now, more than ever, it’s important that we ensure cancer research remains in the hearts and minds of people in Leeds and the wider Yorkshire region.

Take on Challenge90

We’ve teamed up with Leeds United to launch a fitness challenge, Challenge90. We’re asking fans to do 90 minutes of exercise every week, just the length of a football match.
