The 2.6 Challenge, Save the UK's charities

We're excited to be part of the 2.6 Challenge, a campaign to save the UK's Charities.  Here's why...

'The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income through fundraising events.  The Virgin Money London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26 April, is the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event.

Hope Health Action, like so many charities across the UK, has been hugely impacted by the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events due to COVID-19.?  In response, the organisers of the biggest mass participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help our fundraising and save the UK’s charities.

The campaign, The 2.6 Challenge, will launch on Sunday 26 April 2020 – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon.  The challenge will last for a week. The 2.6 Challenge is open to anyone of any age – the only requirement is that the activity must follow the Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing and remember to stay local.'

From Sunday 26 April 2020, we are asking you to dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise by donating to Hope Health Action.  Check out the 2.6 website and choose to fundraise or donate to HHA.  You'll be able to find us on the website along with exciting ideas of what you could do.   Whoever you are, whatever age, please get behind us during this critical time so we can continue our lifesaving work in Haiti and East Africa.
