How to get involved

Get inspired

You don't have to be a marathon runner to take part. 2.6 miles? 26 yoga poses? Maybe juggling for 2.6 minutes? Take a look at our challenge ideas to get you inspired.

Take part

Create a fundraising page for your challenge and show everyone how it's done. Or, simply complete a challenge and donate to your chosen charity afterwards.

Donate, share and nominate

Donate to the cause, share the challenge on your social media and nominate your friends and family to get involved in helping to save the UK's charities.

Save the UK's Charities

Many fundraising events in the UK have been postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst we are all hopeful many of these events will go ahead at a later date, many charities across the UK have been left struggling to maintain their services.

These charities need our support now more than ever. From those supporting children to the elderly, as well as those providing vital palliative care, mental health support, housing, food supplies and more. It’s never been more important to come together and show how much we care.

Our Home Heroes

It's time to start your challenge

How do I get involved?

No need to be a marathon runner to take part – this is a challenge for all ages and abilities. Just get thinking of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 and complete it on or from Sunday April 26. 

It could be something as simple as running 2.6 miles, 26 minutes of yoga, or juggling for 26 minutes - or on second thoughts, maybe just 2.6 minutes! Check out this guide for more ideas and inspiration.

And don’t worry if you’re not able to get out your house or flat for now. We’re not looking for superheroes - we’re looking for Home Heroes. 

There are no rules (apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time). Whatever you can do, you can be part of it – the main thing is getting active, having fun and donating whatever you can to help save the UK’s charities.
