To help support Reedham Children's Trust and other UK charities affected by the Covid-19, all charities are uniting to raise vital funds to ensure the charities we all love and need can survive and continue to help those that need them.

So how does it work?

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26th April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Reedham Children’s Trust via

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 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless!

In fact the team here at Reedham are joining in too! We have a member doing 26 keepie uppies (5 is her current record) and another skipping 26 laps of the garden!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.

Most people are taking part from Sunday 26th April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just five simple steps to take:

1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here

2. Set up your fundraising page (here) and search for Reedham Children’s Trust - or if you’d rather be a spectator, please donate £26 – or whatever you can afford –(donate here for Reedham directly, donate here for all charities taking part)

3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and 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
