The 2.6 Challenge launched on Sunday 26 April – the original date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.
We’re challenging you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Lepra.
People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless!
The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.
There are just five simple steps to take:
With your fantastic fundraising, £6 can buy a comfortable, safe pair of shoes to help someone affected by leprosy walk, work and keep their independence, and £26 can pay for a day's training of 2 community champions so they are able detect signs of leprosy and LF.
We hope you’ll join the nation in The 2.6 Challenge to transform the life of someone affected by leprosy and help to save the UK’s charities.
On behalf of everyone we support, a huge thank you.
