Get involved in the 2.6 challenge ‘together at home’

Posted on: 17th April 2020
Why we need your help
Liver disease will not stop during this pandemic – thousands of people across the UK will still be living with a liver condition and will be especially vulnerable at this time. With your help, we will continue to be there for them when they most need us.

The British Liver Trust like so many charities across the UK, has been hugely impacted by the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events due to COVID-19.

This is why we are proud to be part of the nationwide  2.6 Challenge, which will launch on Sunday 26 April 2020 – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event, which raised £66.4 million for charities in 2019.  The challenge will last for a week.

The 2.6 Challenge is open to anyone of any age – the only requirement is that the activity must follow the Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing and remember to stay local.

From Sunday 26 April 2020, we are asking you to dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise by donating  to the British Liver Trust.

What can I do to take part in the 2.6 challenge?

The 2.6 Challenge can be anything that works for you.  You can run or walk 2.6 miles, 2.6km or for 26 minutes. You could do the same in your home or garden, go up and down the stairs 26 times, juggle for 2.6 minutes, do a 26 minute exercise class or get 26 people on a video call and do a 26 minute workout – anything you like.

A great opportunity get active, have fun and raise money for the British Liver Trust, together at home.

We want people to get active, have fun and raise money to help Save the UK’s Charities by giving money or raising funds for the charity close to your heart.”
