Calling all home heroes!

The coronavirus outbreak has put the UK’s charities under immense strain and we need your help now more than ever.

Join the nation for the 2.6 virtual challenge! You can choose any activity you like - from running 2.6 miles every day for 10 days to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends. Donate to our charity or go a step further and fundraise from friends and family.

How do I get involved?

There are three simple steps to setting up and completing your 2.6 virtual challenge.

Step one: Decide what your challenge is going to be. Base it around 2.6 or 26 and complete your challenge either on Sunday 26th April or afterwards.

Step two: Donate £26 or start fundraising on our dedicated JustGiving page.

Step three: Ask your family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you and then encourage them to do their own 2.6 Challenge for Action for Children.

There are no rules (just follow the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time). Whatever you can do, you can be part of it – the main thing is getting active, having fun and donating whatever you can - big or small!

Spread the word

Inspire your friends and family to take part by sharing your pictures and videos on social media using the official hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge along with #ActionForChildren so we can cheer you on!
