The 2.6 Challenge
become a #healthynhappy hero - WE NEED YOU!
Thousands of fundraising events across the UK have been cancelled due to Covid-19 with a devastating impact on charity income. In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help save the UK’s charities.
The campaign, The 2.6 Challenge, will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th edition of the London Marathon.
The 2.6 Challenge can be anything you like from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, 2.6 km or for 26 minutes. Or you could hop/skip round your garden 26 times, go up and down the stairs 26 times, do 26 press ups, flip 26 pancakes, get 26 people on a video call and do a 26 minute workout or juggle for 2.6 minutes – to name but a few ideas.
We would ask local people to get active, have fun and raise money for Healthy n Happy, so we can continue to support those most in need in our communities during these uncertain times.
From Sunday 26 April 2020, Healthy n Happy are asking as many local people as possible to get involved in fundraising for this brilliant campaign and to dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26.
It will last up to a week and is open to people of all ages and abilities – the only requirement is that the activity must follow the Government guidelines on exercise, social distancing and to stay local. Share your photos or videos with the #twopointsixchallenge and tag us in so we can see what you are all up to on our communities behalf!
