Aviation charity Aerobility is taking part in a nationwide event this coming Sunday, 26 April, to help save the UK’s charities.
The 2.6 Challenge on Sunday 26 April is taking place on the day when the London Marathon would have taken place. The race is the world’s biggest one-day fund-raising event.
“We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate,” said Aerobility.
“People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends.
“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 do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.”
There are five simple steps:
- Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here
- Head to twopointsixchallenge.co.uk to donate £26 – or whatever you can afford – to Aerobility or to set up a fundraising page
- Ask friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge
- Complete your challenge
- Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge
