The 2.6 Challenge in aid of EAAA

Take part at home!

From 2.6 to 26 - it's your choice, your challenge and you who will be making a difference! 

Calling all home heroes!

Thousands of fundraising events across the UK have been cancelled due to Covid-19 with a devastating impact on charities. That's why this Sunday, we are tasking you with a new challenge! 

Get involved with the new 2.6 challenge, launching on Sunday 26 April - what should have been the date of the 40th edition of the London Marathon, one of UK's biggest one day annual fundraising events. 

From Sunday we are asking you to come up with an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise for East Anglian Air Ambulance! 

Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. Your fundraiser could last 26 days or as little as 2.6 hours. You can run, walk, skip, dance or cycle for an activity based challenge or get creative and bake or create something. Fundraise on your own, with your family or virtually with friends!

Choose your #TwoPointSixChallenge, set up a fundraising page on JustGiving and get involved by posting on social media to let your friends and family know how you will be fundraising for us! Dont forget to tag us so we can see your creative ideas!

From 2.6 to 26 - it's your choice, your challenge and you who will be making a difference!
