2.6 Challenge | Join us and Choose Love!

We’re taking part in the 2.6 Challenge, the nationwide fundraising campaign to help save the UK’s charities!

We need your help!


You can fundraise for us by taking part in an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 – this could be anything from skipping for 2.6 minutes, tossing a pancake 26 times, or running 2.6 miles. There are limitless creative ways to get involved with the challenge, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with!


The challenge will launch on Sunday 26th April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon. So, feel free to run 26 miles in honour of the occasion!


Every year the marathon raises £66.4 million, but this year things are little different and unfortunately, the marathon has had to be postponed. Instead, the organisers of the London Marathon have come together to save the UK’s charities by launching the 2.6 challenge.


Don’t worry if you’re not able to get out your house or flat for now – you can do the 2.6 challenge anywhere inside too! There are no rules, apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise
safely during this time. Be as creative as you like – the main thing is to have fun and pledge whatever you can.


Here are some creative ideas from our supporters:

  • climb the stairs 26 times
  • do 26 outfit changes in a day
  • write 26 shorts stories
  • do 26 small doodles
  • run 2.6 miles
  • bake 26 cupcakes
  • hoola hoop for 26 minutes
  • complete 2.6 jigsaw puzzles
  • take 26 photographs around the house
  • hold a plank for 2.6 minutes!


We would love to see all the creative ideas you come up with so please share your efforts on social media and be sure to tag us @ChooseLove and #TwoPointSixChallenge.


It would be so wonderful to have your support! So please join the 2.6 challenge and Choose Love!
