Take the 2.6 Challenge for Livability

In response to thousands of charity events being cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, organisers of the UK’s mass-participation sporting events joined forces to create The 2.6 Challenge with the goal of supporting charities and the people we support.

Be a #TeamLivability hero taking on The 2.6 Challenge

All you need to do is choose an activity themed around 2.6 or 26 – here’s a few ideas that may be helpful:

  • walk 2.6k backwards, run 2.6 miles or cycle 26k on a static or exercise bike
  • drop 26 squats, do 26 pull-ups and 26 push-ups a day for 26 days
  • hop 26 times, skip for 26-minutes or dance for 26 hours, virtually with friends!
  • bake 26 scones, paint 26 flowers or draw an animal alphabet, so 26 creatures
  • host a 26-question virtual quiz over 26 minutes or with 26 teams

The ideas are endless, so pick whatever is fun or challenging to you – there’s more ideas here too.

Once you’ve decided on your challenge, whether solo or with your social bubble, virtually with friends, family or colleagues:

  • set-up a JustGiving fundraising page or donate £2.60, £26 or whatever you can afford
  • ask family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you – don’t be shy to ask, surveys have concluded since the pandemic began that the public are very keen to support charities
  • Complete your challenge – good luck!
  • Share photos and videos on social media using #TeamLivability #StarCarers

When and how can I join in?

Choose whatever dates suits you to complete your 2.6 Challenge and whatever funds you are able to raise through donations or sponsorship would be absolutely awesome!

Livability is on the frontline of this pandemic, providing care, nursing, education and support to disabled people who are the most vulnerable in this crisis.  Livability services are a lifeline for those who use our services and for the NHS.

We’re working to save lives – but we can’t do it without your help, so thank you!
