The 2.6 Challenge

Break are supporting The 2.6 Challenge.

Do you want to make a difference?

Do you want to be part of something positive to help society in these difficult days?

Do you want to have fun?

Break are proud to announce we are supporting the 2.6 challenge from 26 April. It’s been created to help save the UKs charities. 2.6 miles. 2.6 km. 26 press ups. 26 times up and down the stairs. 26 pancake flips. In fact anything with a 2 and a 6.

As you know our aim has always been to give vulnerable children and young people the time, support, and love they need to achieve their full potential. The cancellation of our events and temporary closure of our shops is leaving us a significant challenge. In fact did you know that across all UK charities there is a massive £4 billion shortfall for the crucial work we do?

So Break are supporting this great initiative beginning on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one day annual fundraising event which raised £66.4m in 2019.

From Sunday 26 April, we’re asking you to dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to Break to help Save the UKs charities. It can be anything you like (as long as it follows the government’s advice on exercise and social distancing).

All you need to do is

  1. Dream up a 2.6 challenge!
  2. Head to www.justgiving.com/break donate £26 or whatever you can afford, or set up a fundraising page.
  3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 challenge!
  4. Complete your challenge and share your achievement.

Thank you for helping Break and Saving the UK’s Charities.
