We hope you’re well during this unprecedented time. We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April to help to save the UK’s charities.

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.

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 – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

We’re 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
The Log Cabin Charity via our Team Page on Just 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 or want more information, there are lots of ideas here
2.      Head to our Team Page on Just Giving to donate £26 – or whatever you can afford or set up your on challenge and fundraisin page on JustGiving.
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 @logcabincharity on Insta and Log Cabin Charity on facebook.

We hope you’ll join the nation in The 2.6 Challenge to support The Log Cabin Charity and help to save the UK’s charities.
