Take on ‘The 2.6 Challenge’ and change lives!


Join the nationwide team of #HomeHeroes who are taking on ‘The 2.6 Challenge’ and raising money to help save the UK’s charities. Get involved on Sunday 26th April!

Coronavirus has us all feeling the pinch, but UK charities currently supporting the most vulnerable of our society are some of the hardest hit. The cancellation of events, fundraising streams and extra costs related to Covid-19 has meant that billions of pounds of income has been lost.

That’s why the organisers of the London Marathon and other mass-participation sports events have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help save the UK’s charities.

Join the rest of the nation and take on The 2.6 Challenge to help fundraise for those most affected by the virus.

How does it work?

> Step 1: Set up a fundraiser

> Step 2: Take part in an activity that incorporates the numbers 2.6 (or 26).

> Step 3: Get your family, friends, housemates, kids, uncles, aunties or cousins involved!

THAT’S IT! There’s even a list of suggestions that you can use to get inspired. You could walk 2.6km every day for a week, dance non-stop for 2.6 hours, run 26 laps of the garden, or climb 26 trips up and down the stairs.

If sports are not your cup of tea, how about trying to read 26 books or challenging 26 friends to a bake off. It can be as creative or as challenging as you like!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can take part whenever best suits you!
