The 2.6 Challenge to help save UK charities

Bath Mind have joined the national 2.6 challenge to help save UK charities

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26th April – 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 Bath Mind.

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!

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

There are just five simple steps to take:

  • Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here
  • Head to our 2.6 JustGiving challenge page here to donate £26 – or whatever you can afford – to Bath Mind or to set up a fundraising page
  • Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge
  • Complete your challenge
  • Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge (please do tag Bath Mind in any of your posts!)

You can find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!
