26th April 2020 would have been one of the biggest fundraising day of the year thanks to the London Marathon, the world’s biggest one day fundraising event which raised £66.4 million for charities in 2019.
In response, the UK’s mass participation sports event industry joined together to create The 2.6 Challenge, a nationwide fundraising campaign to Save the UK’s Charities.
We invited you to dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and donate or fundraise for Cerebral Palsy Sport.
We want to say a massive thank you to all of those who got involved, the donations are still coming in.
Cerebral Palsy Sport Ambassador Leon Taylor was the first to step up to the ‘plate’ with his 26 cake baking challenge, even broadcasting it live on his facebook page.
There were also distance challenges – by bicycle and kaye walker as well as more wacky challenges, like walking backwards for 26 minutes!
You can support our fundraisers still or make your own donation here
