Have you heard about the 2.6 Challenge?
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in fundraising income.
In response, the organisers of the London Marathon and other UK sports events have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.
The 2.6 Challenge launched on Sunday – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.
Do it for Soulscape!
As Soulscape supporters, we hope you’ll take on a challenge for us so that we can continue to be there for our local young people – both remotely during the lockdown and to help them make sense of this experience when they start to go back to school.
All you have to do is take part in an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to Soulscape via twopointsixchallenge.co.uk
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 reading 26 books in a weekend. The ideas and options are endless!
The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Get involved whenever you have a moment!
Five simple steps
- Dream up your 2.6 challenge – there are lots of ideas here.
- Head to our 2.6 challenge page to donate £26 – or whatever you can afford – to Soulscape, or to set up a fundraising page if you want to collect sponsorship instead.
- Ask all your 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
