A vital fundraiser for local charities, Yorkshire Choice Awards have grown considerably since 2016 and 2022 will be no exception. The team behind the awards has chosen MND Association inspired by Rob Burrow as their 2022 chosen charity.
Former Leeds Rhinos scrum-half Rob Burrow was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in December 2019, just two years after ending his playing career by captaining Leeds to a record-extending eighth Super League Grand Final.
Rob is one of an estimated 5,000 adults in the UK currently living with motor neurone disease. Every day, an average of six people are diagnosed with MND. The MND Association focuses on improving access to care, funding research, and campaigning for those people living with, or affected by, MND.
Jenn Dodd from the MND Association said “‘Rob Burrow has raised invaluable awareness as well as vital funds to support people affected by MND both nationally and in Yorkshire since his diagnosis. We are incredibly grateful to the Yorkshire Choice Awards for choosing the MND Association inspired by Rob Burrow as their chosen charity for the awards next year. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of people in Yorkshire as well as continuing to raise vital funds in the fight against MND.”
Shortlisted nominees and winners will not be announced before the Awards Gala Dinner at The Centenary Pavilion, Leeds Utd. Football ground, on 6th May 2022.
To find out who gets the final vote, book your tickets for the ultimate celebration of achievement in Yorkshire. The black-tie ceremony, with gala dinner and live music will be hosted by influential regional journalist and broadcaster, Christa Ackroyd.
