Terriers back League charity on 30 March
Huddersfield Town will use the npower Championship game at home to Hull City on 30 March to support the Football League’s chosen charity for the 2012/13 season – Prostate Cancer UK.
Prostate Cancer is a disease that kills 10,000 men every year - that's one man every hour – and the number of men with the disease is rising at an alarming rate.
While it is already the most common cancer in men, prostate cancer is predicted to become the most common cancer of all in the UK by 2030.
Town will have several exciting initiatives to help raise awareness and funds for Prostate Cancer UK – full details will follow next week on htafc.com – whereas the Club’s official match day magazine, Give Us An H, will carry the story of Town fan Kevin Rowbottom, who has recovered from Prostate Cancer.
Huddersfield Town’s Chief Executive Nigel Clibbens commented:
“I believe that Prostate Cancer UK is a very worthy cause for the entire Football League to support this season, as football’s core demographic is also the major risk group for this disease.
“Here at Huddersfield Town, we are delighted to throw our support behind the campaign to raise awareness of the condition. It’s scary to think that in the time it takes for one of our fans to walk through our turnstiles, watch the match and leave the ground, two men will have died from Prostate Cancer somewhere in the UK and anything we can do to help combat this illness is a positive.
“Hopefully this League-wide campaign can have a positive impact on the research and support of the charity.”
On top of the Club’s support for Prostate Cancer UK, there will be plenty more happening on the day when the live Sky TV cameras visit. Eight brave cyclists undertaking the Club’s ‘Pedal for Pounds 4’ bike ride will complete a practise run from London at the Stadium (click HERE
