JOIN AUTISM ALL STARS IN THE 2.6 CHALLENGE
Today I’m inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge
from Sunday 26 April to help save the UK’s charities, including ours!
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in fundraising income at a time their services are needed more than ever.
In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.
The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April, which should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.
I’m asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Autism All Stars via VIRGIN MONEY GIVING
People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless!
The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.
There are just five simple steps to take:
1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here DOWNLOADABLE 2.6 ACTIVITY PACK
2. Head to OUR 2.6 CHALLENGE PAGE to donate £26 (or whatever you can afford) directly to Autism All Stars, or scroll to the bottom and press the link to set up your own fundraising page
3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge
4. Complete your challenge
5. Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge
I really hope you’ll join our great nation in The 2.6 Challenge this year to support Autism All Stars and do your bit to save the UK’s charities.
