Take the 2.6 Challenge to support Hope for Tomorrow

With charities hit hard by cancelled fundraising events, a Tetbury-based charity is calling on people to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April to help the NHS and people with cancer.

Hope for Tomorrow's mobile cancer care units operate all round the country and are in even higher demand than ever, as they work with NHS partners to continue to help as many cancer patients as possible through these unprecedented times.

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.

Whatever your age or ability, you can take part and make a real difference. Participants can take part in an activity of their choice, based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Hope for Tomorrow.

There is a range 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!

There is no registration fee to take part. The only requirement is that you must follow government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.

You can register for The 2.6 Challenge here.
