Leeds United legend in Jane's 10k run

Leeds United fans have got the chance to line up alongside club legend Eddie Gray at one of Yorkshire's biggest charity events.

Eddie is taking part in this summer's Leeds 10k Run For All, an annual fundraising race launched by the late cancer heroine Jane Tomlinson.

Fans who would like to be on his team should visit the www.leedsunited.com website and download the Run With Eddie application form.

Cash raised by those who register via Run With Eddie will be split between the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and the Leeds United Foundation.

Good causes that have benefited from the Tomlinson appeal in the past include the Yorkshire Cancer Centre and Macmillan Cancer Support. The

Leeds United Foundation, which has charitable status, is the new name for the club's Football In the Community scheme.

Eddie said: "A lot of people in the city will benefit and it's a great day out for everybody."

Jane's widower, Mike, said: "Leeds United have a huge influence on the city and the region. It's vital to have a partnership with them."

Jane raised nearly 2m for charity by tackling a series of marathons and other gruelling endurance challenges after being diagnosed with cancer.

The mum-of-three, from Rothwell, died in 2007 aged 43.

Date: 8th January 2018.
