From ‘Asthma UK’
Asthma Uk, like so many charities, has been hugely impacted by the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events due to COVID-19.
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 our fundraising and save UK’s charities.
The campaign, The 2.6 Challenge, will launch on Sunday 26 April 2020 – what should have been the date of the 40th London marathon, and last for a week.
Whatever your age or ability, you can take part!
All you need to do is dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise for Asthma UK by setting up your Just Giving page. Whether you run round the garden for 2.6 miles, do 26 press ups, recite 26 lines of a poem or stay silent for 26 minutes, we would love your help!
There are no rules, apart from the above. The main thing is to get active, have fun and raise money in support of Asthma UK.
