Team story

[p][br][/p][p]Be Free Young Carers are joining up with mass participation event organisers including parkrun, London Landmarks, Virgin Sport and London Marathon Events to unit to support the UK’s charities with the launch of The 2.6 Challenge.[/p][p][url=https://www.twopointsixchallenge.co.uk/]The 2.6 Challenge[/url] begins on Sunday 26 April, which should have been the date of the 40th edition of the [url=https://www.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/en-gb/]London Marathon[/url]. It challenges the public to come up with an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26, and to fundraise or donate to Save the UK’s Charities via The 2.6 Challenge website. It is open to anyone of any age but all activities must follow the Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.[/p][p]You can run or walk 2.6 miles, 2.6km or for 26 minutes. You could do the same in your home or garden, go up and down the stairs 26 times, juggle for 2.6 minutes, do a 26 minute exercise class or get 26 people on a video call and do a 26 minute workout – anything you like. We want people to get active, have fun and raise money to help Save the UK’s Charities by giving money or raising funds for Be Free Young Carers.[/p]
