Here's why I'm taking part in Challenge90
1 in 2 people will experience cancer in their lifetime, with more people in Yorkshire likely to have their lives cut short by cancer than almost anywhere else in England. Up to thirteen cancers can be prevented by being more fit and active, and through our pioneering research, exercise can also be as effective as other treatments once cancer has been diagnosed. There is no club that values fitness in the same way as Leeds United.
That’s why Yorkshire Cancer Research and Leeds United have launched Challenge90 – a weekly 90-minute fitness challenge, just the length of a football match. We're aiming to collectively reach 100,000 minutes of exercise over the course of this season, so that as a community, we can save more lives in Yorkshire.
