Take part in the 2.6 Challenge. Help save lives in Yorkshire

Fri 24th April 2020
2 6 Challenge

Join in the 2.6 Challenge and help people in Yorkshire avoid and survive cancer.

Because the Covid-19 pandemic has had such a devastating effect on charities with the loss of billions in income, the organisers of events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help UK charities.

Now, more than ever, they need your support.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26th April as this would have been the day of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event. Simply choose an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise (or donate) for your chosen charity. 

You may wish to take part in the 2.6 challenge for Yorkshire Cancer Research 

People are taking part in a host of different activities – from walking, running or cycling  2.6 miles, to juggling for 2.6 minutes, or holding online workouts with 26 friends.

There are already ideas to suit a whole range of interests, but you may have an idea that’s completely unique. In which case, Yorkshire Cancer Research would love to hear about it at events@ycr.org.uk

There are just five simple steps to take:
