TwoPointSixChallenge Raise funds for SOFT UK

SOFT UK is excited to announce that we are joining the #TwoPointSixChallenge to help save the UK's charities!
The Covid-19 Pandemic is having a financially catastrophic effect on UK charities, with fundraising events cancelled up and down the country and the potential future impact of a struggling economy.  UK charities have come together to create the #TwoPointSixChallenge, to bring together individuals and families at home with UK charities for a massive fundraising event. 


How can I get involved?

Everyone can take part in the Challenge. 

The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like.  Have a look at the handy Family Pack for a plethora of ideas! You can even print yourselves a completion certificate!
Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. After all, we’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes.

What do I need to do?

All you need to do is dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 that suits your skills and complete it on or after Sunday 26 April – when the 40th London Marathon would have taken place.

This could be something as simple as pledging to run or ride 2.6 miles as your daily exercise, holding the plank for 2.6 minutes, to gardening for 26 minutes.
The #TwoPointSixChallenge is your chance to be a Home Hero and raise funds from your very own living room, bedroom, balcony or garden!?

There are no rules – apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time. The main thing is to get active, have fun, pledge whatever you can to help or fundraise to save the UK’s charities.

How do I raise money for SOFT UK?

You can pop a donation in yourself, or from your family.  Or you can create your own onlinw fundraising page and ask friends and family to sponsor you!
