2.6 Challenge

Time:
Any time

Location:
Your home or local area

With many fundraising events being postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are at risk of losing a significant amount of income.  This could have a devastating impact on the charity at a time when the children and families we support need us more than ever. 

That's why we need you to take on the 2.6 challenge for Momentum Children's Charity. Run 2.6 miles around your garden, walk up and down your stairs 26 times, or do 260 thigh-burning squats, whatever challenge you choose you'll be helping us continue to support children with cancer or life-challenging conditions.

How to get involved?

Sign up to join the challenge via: JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving

Share your fundraising page with everyone you know and ask them to support your 2.6 challenge.

You don't need to be a marathon runner or elite athlete to take part – this is a challenge for all ages and abilities. Just think up an activity based around the numbers 2 and 6 and complete it whenever you like! 

NB Please follow the guidelines from the Government around social distancing on how to exercise safely during this time.

How does your fundraising help?
