We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April to help to save the UK’s charities.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events and the loss of billions in fundraising income.

In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch this Sunday, April 26 2020. That should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising 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 to support us here at Tigers Trust 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 holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from this Sunday, but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just five simple steps to take:

1 Dream up your 2.6 challenge

2 Head to Tigers Trust Virgin Money Giving Page  to donate £2.60, £26 or whatever you can afford ­– to Tigers Trust 

3 Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge

4 Complete your challenge

5 Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge

We hope you’ll join the nation in The 2.6 Challenge to support Tigers Trust and help to save the UK’s charities.
