2.6 Challenge

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events and the loss of billions in income.

To help charities to continue to help people during this period, the 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26th April.

They are calling on you to become Home Hero's and raise funds (for your chosen charity) from your very own living room, bedroom, balcony or garden.

All you need to do is dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 that suits your skills. For instance, you could go up and down the stairs 26 times, do a 26-minute exercise class or get 26 people on a video call and do a 26-minute workout – anything you like! If you are struggle to create your own challenge, don't worry, there are lots of examples you can choose from on the website.

Help to inspire the nation by sharing pictures or videos of your challenge on social media using the official hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge
