The organisers of the London Marathon have created the 2.6 Challenge with the aim of raising vital funds for the UK charity sector, which is set to lose £4 billion in income as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
You can get involved and support Jigsaw (South East) child bereavement charity by taking part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate via our dedicated 2.6 Challenge page.
You could run, walk, hop, cycle or skip 2.6 miles, 2.6kms or for 26 minutes. Perhaps go up and down the stairs 26 times, do 26 press ups with your dog on your back, or hold an online workout with 26 friends; the ideas and options are endless! The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.
Launch day is Sunday 26th April, which would have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.
