The 2.6 Challenge - Save the UK's Charities

If you’re thinking of taking part in the 2.6 challenge (from the organisers of the London Marathon) then that’s really awesome. The UK’s charities need a lot of support right now.

If you are going to take part on behalf of BASIC and rebuild some lives with us – then that's amazing and we're here to help.

Running - Cooking - Reading - Singing - Spinning - Whatever works for you!

We can’t do the 26 mile London Marathon so instead pick an activity involving 2.6 or 26 of something - 26 minutes, 2.6 miles, 26 repetitions. Then get sponsors to inspire you to do it with style and a greater sense of social purpose on the 26th of April. Save the charities.

There are a few ways we can help.

We’ve also got a whole host of social media content that can help you spread the word. Just ask via [email protected]

Looking at setting up a Just Giving page – use the link for the charity you're supporting - or this link to connect your fundraising to BASIC.

Looking at setting up a Virgin Money Giving page – use the link for the charity you're supporting - or this link to connect your fundraising to BASIC.

But please don’t forget to do this in line with Lockdown and Social Distancing rules as defined by the Gov!

We're excited to see all the challenges that happen on or around the 26th - and happy to play our part.
