About the event
The UK charity sector estimates it will lose £4 billion in income as a result of the pandemic (source: National Council of Voluntary Organisations CEO Karl Wilding).
With hundreds of events postponed due to the pandemic, thousands of charities have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most.
The 2.6 Challenge is a simple way for people of all ages and abilities to help save the UK’s charities on Sunday 26 April. Your challenge could be as simple as pledging to run 2.6 miles
as your daily exercise to doing 26 minutes of juggling non-stop.
How to get involved
There’s no need to be a marathon runner to take part, this is a challenge for all ages and abilities. We’re not looking for superheroes, we’re looking for Home Heroes.
All you need to do is dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 that suits your skills and complete it on or from Sunday 26 April.
There are no rules, apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time. The main thing is to get active, have fun and help support UK’s charities.
Join The 2.6 Challenge and select Mind in Somerset as your chosen charity.
