Well-Being Week 2 | Back the 2.6 Challenge

Figure image

This Sunday should have been the day of the London Marathon, a huge day in the calendar for UK charities, and although the lockdown means no London, there is still a way we can all help.

The 2.6 Challenge has been created by the organisers of the London Marathon to help support charities during the current pandemic.

The Leicester Tigers Foundation is an official club charity this season - alongside the Matt Hampson Foundation, Leicestershire & Rutland Blood Bikes and Bodie Hodges Foundation - and works within the local community to make a positive difference to the lives and opportunities of thousands of individuals and groups every year.

Like many charities, the Foundation is facing up to reduced revenues from social distancing and cancellation of key events during the Coronavirus outbreak.

But there is a chance to show support for its work by taking part in or supporting the 2.6 Challenge this weekend.

The #TwoPointSixChallenge involves taking on something including the numbers 2.6 or 26 (in reference to the marathon distance) and raising funds for important causes in the process.

You can join in and take on tour own 2.6 Challenge, whether that means walking up and down stairs 26 times, running 2.6 kilometres in laps around your own garden or something more creative, the choice is yours – as long as you can show support you’re your favourite charities in the process and help them continue their amazing work in the community.

For all the information on the 2.6 Challenge, how to fundraise or donate to help charities including the Tigers Foundation, see the website by clicking here.

The Tigers Foundation is listed as charities you can support through the official site.
