The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income through fundraising events.
26.2 miles would have been run by thousands of people this week on Sunday 26th April in the iconic London Marathon. This is just one of so many events that have been cancelled. The 2.6 challenge is taking place on and from the 26th April to inspire the nation to get active and get fundraising. You can support any charity, but we hope you might support COCO.
What can you do to get involved? 26-minute bike ride? 26 yoga positions? 26 keepie-ups? Ask your friends to sponsor you by setting up a page of your own here or make a donation on COCO's Virgin Money Giving Page here.
Here's what you need to do in 4 easy steps!
STEP 1 - decide on your 2.6 challenge. You can run, walk, cycle, do a workout, anything you like – just make sure your activity follows the government guidelines on exercise and social distancing!
STEP 2 - head to our Virgin Money Giving Page here to donate £26 (or whatever you can afford).
STEP 3 - set up your own fundraising page here and ask your friends to sponsor you, or even do their own challenge!
STEP 4 - complete your challenge and share a photo tagging COCO and #TwoPointSixChallenge
That's it! You're all done!
