TAKE ON THE 2.6 CHALLENGE AND BE A STAY-AT-HOME HERO
With Youth Adventure Trust
Our friends at Youth Adventure Trust are asking us all to join them in the nationwide initiative to directly help the vulnerable young people on their programme.
All you need to do is dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 that suits your skills and complete it on Sunday April 26 – when the 40th London Marathon would have taken place.
People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 26 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless!
The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever suits you.
There are just five simple steps to take:
1. Dream up your 2.6 Challenge. Ideas can be found HERE
2. Head to Just Giving to donate £26 – or whatever you can afford – to Youth Adventure Trust or to set up a fundraising page
3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and/or challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge
4. Complete your challenge
5. Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge and #InspiringYoungLives
For further information on The 2.6 Challenge and for more ideas visit the Youth Adventure Trust website HERE
If we can get 100 people to raise or donate £26 then that would cover the cost of providing remote mentoring for 40 young people for a fortnight. This will enable The Youth Adventure Trust to continue to help them make positive decisions, develop confidence and build resilience so they can achieve their full potential and navigate these challenging times.
