The Two Point Six Challenge

Why we need your help

Calling all Home Heroes

We need your help! Join the nation and make a donation to British Blind Sport or take on your own 2.6 Challenge and raise sponsorship from your friends and family! From 2.6 to 26 - it's your choice, your challenge, your cause. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on charities with the cancellation of thousands of events leading to a loss of income from fundraising events. 

The Virgin London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26th April, is the world's biggest one-day fundraising event which raised over £66 million for charities in 2019. 

Many charities are having to reduce or stop services. British Blind Sport has made the decision to move and change with the times and we are now reaching people with sight loss in new ways via our live workouts and virtual workout library. But we need your help to make sure that we survive throughout the pandemic and come out the other side so we can keep helping people with sight loss to get active. 

You can help

From Sunday 26 April, the day when the London Marathon would have taken place, join the rest of the UK for The 2.6 Challenge.

The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like - from running or cycling 2.6 miles or 26.2 miles over a day or a week to joining our 26 min live workouts. You could bake 26 cakes, hold a 26 hour silence or hop up and down your street for 26 mins. You really can do anything!

Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. After all, we're not looking for superheroes. We're looking for Home Heroes. 

You can set-up your own fundraising page here and share it with your family and friends or you can make a donation.

Choose your #twopointsixchallenge and select the donate or fundraise buttons below to fundraise for British Blind Sport, then complete your Challenge.

You can share your Challenge with us on social media - we'd love to see the activities and ideas that you come up with!

Thank you so much for your support at a time that is challenging for everyone. We truly appreciate it.
