CRASH has launched The 2.6 Challenge taking place from the 26th April. The campaign is headed by the team behind the London Marathon which was due to take place on the 26th. Inspired by the number 26, the challenge aims to replace the loss of vital income to charities and bring the nation together to save the UK’s charities.
You can take part by choosing an activity of your choice inspired by the number 2.6 or 26 and donating to CRASH. To start your challenge and for full details, visit our event page here.
If you need inspiration for your own 2.6 challenge, the CRASH team and some of our brilliant supporters have made a head start…
Lucie Gillard, Fundraising Coordinator at CRASH said:
‘‘CRASH is excited to be part of The 2.6 Challenge as its inclusive, creative and you can make the most of what you enjoy doing whilst supporting CRASH. I’m lucky to live opposite a common so I wanted my challenge to be outside during my daily exercise. My 2.6 Challenge was to complete 26 rolls down a hill!”
Niamh McCann, Projects Manager at CRASH took her challenge international with the help of her friends in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand and completed 26 people doing 26 star jumps. She said:
‘‘I had a lot of fun making the video, and so did all my volunteers. Who know star jumps could be so funny…and that there are so many interpretations of what a star jump is?!”
Chris takes on 43 kick ups in 26 seconds!
Becky Holt, Marketing and Communications Manager at CRASH said:
‘‘What a fantastic campaign to save the UK’s charities at such a challenging time. I chose to learn 26 pregnancy yoga positions for the challenge – I’m not an expert but it was a lot of fun.”
The rest of the CRASH team have been busy too – CRASH Chief Executive Francesca Roberts spent the weekend making 26 plant cuttings and will continue nurturing them, ready to give to people when we are able to socialise again. Kate Marsh, CRASH’s Senior Partnership Manager had a spring clean and has gathered 26 items to donate to a local charity shop when they reopen.
The 2.6 Challenge is a great way to stay connected with friends and colleagues whilst supporting your industry charity.
