As the London Marathon and many other important fundraising events have been cancelled due to Covid-19, hundreds of charities are instead joining a new campaign to raise essential funds: the 2.6 Challenge.
At Adventure Plus, we too have had to cancel activities and events, resulting in lost income. At this difficult time, we would like to ask you to join the 2.6 Challenge on our behalf!
It is increasingly evident that the pandemic and its impact on lifestyles and livelihoods will have a massive detrimental effect on the mental health of the nation. We know that our programmes can provide an antidote to mental health problems and we are determined to be able to offer support to as many people as possible, as soon as possible. With your help, we will be able to continue the Adventure Base project and make sure we're ready to support our community with adventure and outdoor education as soon as it is again safe to do so.
To join the challenge, simply ask friends and family to sponsor you through our Virgin Money Giving page. Then complete your challenge, making sure you stick to government restrictions, and not forgetting to take photos/video to share with us afterwards!
Some challenge ideas:
- Run - or walk - 2.6 miles
- Skip or bounce on a trampoline non-stop for 26 minutes
- Run up and down the stairs 26 times
- Make 26 cookies shaped as the 26 letters of the alphabet
- Learn to say 'stay safe' in 26 languages...
The ideas are endless! Have fun!
