Raise money with the 2.6 Challenge!

By Dan Etheridge

Could you use your time during the lockdown to raise money for persecuted Christians who are in massive need because of the coronavirus? Take part in the 2.6 Challenge!

The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends (remember to follow Government guidelines on how to exercise safely). Could you yodel for 26 minutes, walk 26 miles over the course of a few days or wear fancy dress for 26 hours? What could you do?

Sam and some of his friends have already raised money by running a marathon relay (26 miles) and Grace generated funds by baking 26 cakes and dropping them off on friends doorsteps. Eliza went further taking 54,000 steps in her garden, which is the equivalent of climbing Everest!

Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. After all, we’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes.

Choose your #TwoPointSixChallenge, then use the link below to sign up (it’s all automated through JustGiving, meaning you can send out notifications to people to encourage sponsorship too).
