Bounce for Cancer Research

Yorks Cancer Research

This summer, Yorkshire Cancer Research is bringing their world record breaking space hopper bounce event to Leeds !
The charity already holds the record for the largest space hopper race in the world, which was achieved at Don Valley Bowl, Sheffield , in July 2010.
Now they need 2,000 people to sign up for 'Bounce for Leeds' on Saturday, 30th July 2011, so they can smash the current world record for the largest number of people bouncing on space hoppers simultaneously for one minute.
Last year 1,505 people gathered on Mount Street , Dublin and made history by achieving the current record for the most people on space hoppers ever - and now it's Yorkshire 's turn!
Bounce for Leeds will begin at 11am at Roundhay Park . Entry costs £10 per person and  everyone will receive a T-shirt and fundraising pack and you'll even be able to take your space hopper home with you!

Sign up today by visiting or visit  them at their stand here in Victoria Quarter on Saturday, March 12th.

Yorkshire Cancer Research helps local people beat cancer by supporting world-class research, diagnosis and treatment throughout the region.

The charity’s goal is help more people in Yorkshire survive cancer and have a better quality of life by developing new scientific knowledge and helping to get that knowledge from the lab to the patient. It also aims to save lives by funding improvements to clinical and surgical practice and by bringing treatments to market.

The charity works to ensure Yorkshire remains a centre of excellence for research and treatment, attracting and retaining outstanding scientists and clinicians, while working in partnership with others to achieve the greatest impact in the global fight against cancer.

Yorkshire Cancer Research also focuses on being the most efficient cancer charity – spending the highest proportion of donations on charitable activities.
