The cancellation of fundraising events has had a significant impact on our charitable income, just when people affected by blood cancer need our support most.

Take on The 2.6 Challenge, have fun and raise vital funds for Blood Cancer UK, because now more than ever, we need your support.

What is The 2.6 Challenge?

The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 – from running 2.6 miles in your garden, flipping a pancake 26 times or doing 26 good deeds.

The possibilities are endless, but here’s some of our favourite ideas we’ve come up with to get you started.

  • The physical challenge: Run or walk 2.6 miles in your garden or home, do 26 minutes of yoga, or flex those muscles and set yourself a goal of 260 press ups, 260 burpees or a 260 second plank.
  • The mental challenge: Learn 26 words in a new language or recruit 26 friends and family for a virtual quiz.
  • The family challenge: Organise a family Olympics at home with 26 activities, bake and decorate 26 cupcakes or hold a 2.6 hour dance/sing-a-thon.

Where and when?

The only requirement is you follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. With so many people affected by blood cancer having to shield from COVID-19, stand in their shoes, and see what you can do in the home to make it even more challenging.

The challenge has gotten underway already – a huge number of people will be taking part on Sunday 26th April, but you can do your challenge whenever it suits you!
