The 2.6 Challenge


Are you a home hero looking to take part in the 2.6 Challenge?

Did you know you can join this challenge and raise money for us?   

What is the 2.6 Challenge?

You may have seen it publicised in the media. All you need to do is think of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 and complete it on or from Sunday 26 April.

It could be something as simple as running 2.6 miles, 26 minutes of yoga, or juggling for 26 minutes (good luck if you try that!).

The idea has been put together by a consortium of big event organisers who are responsible for the likes of the London Marathon. It allows people to raise much-needed funds for charities like ours who will miss out on the money raised during these events because of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
