The Jo Cox Foundation 2.6 Challenge!

Why we need your help


Join Us On Sunday 26th April To Help Save The UK's Charities!

The coronavirus crisis has been a tough time for UK charities who rely on fundraising to survive. Many of these charities would have raised money at the London Marathon on 26th April 2020 but - now that it is cancelled - are losing out on vital funds. In response, the UK’s mass participation sports event industry has come together to create The 2.6 Challenge, a nationwide fundraising campaign to Save the UK's Charities.

Here at The Jo Cox Foundation, we want to use the 2.6 Challenge to help people connect and show kindness to one another during lockdown. Whether that's...

  • Posting messages of support through 26 doors in your neighbourhood
  • Doing 26 (or 260!) star jumps with friends over Facetime
  • Creating personalised artwork for your loved ones in 260 seconds for every £2.60 donation
  • Hosting a 26-minute virtual sing-a-long, yoga class or quiz for your friends
  • Or making your partner a nice coffee and donating £2.60 (the price of a flat white!)

As long as you're having fun and connecting with people, anything goes! Get inspired with 26 Challenge ideas here.

Friends and family can sponsor your challenge by donating £2.60 (or more!) to our #TwoPointSixChallenge fundraising page. We would be incredibly grateful for your support.

And we want to hear from you! Tag @jocoxfoundation and #moreincommon in your 2.6 Challenge videos and send us any ideas you have - we'd love to hear them!

About The Jo Cox Foundation

The Jo Cox Foundation exists to build a positive legacy for the late Jo Cox MP. Its vision is a kinder, more compassionate society, where every individual has a sense of belonging and where we recognise that we have more in common than that which divides us. The Jo Cox Foundation inspires and galvanises positive change at local, national and international levels. They do this by partnering with visionary individuals and organisations who share our commitment to the fairer, kinder world that Jo committed her life to building. The Foundation works locally to foster strong communities in the UK, nationally to build a better public life and internationally to stand up for vulnerable people around the world.
