The 2.6 Challenge for Barnet Community Response Fund
With hundreds of events postponed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, thousands of charities have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most. The 2.6 Challenge is a simple way for everyone to help save the UK’s charities.
Inclusion Barnet is fundraising on behalf of the partnership Barnet Together to support our joint Community Response Fund, all monies raised through this campaign is for the Community Response Fund. Barnet Together is a partnership between Inclusion Barnet, Volunteering Barnet, and the Young Barnet Foundation.
On Sunday 26 April, the day when the Virgin Money London Marathon would have taken place, join the rest of the UK for The 2.6 Challenge. Whatever your age or ability, you can take part.
Your #TwoPointSixChallenge can be any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles on your balcony or around nearby park (in line with the Government rules!), holding an online workout with 26 of your friends, doing 26 press-ups with the dog on your back or bench-pressing 26 kilos with your grandchildren.
