7 Accessible challenge ideas for the 2.6 Challenge

Fundraising Team 2019.jpg

The 2.6 Challenge is set to take place this Sunday (26 April 2020). It is open to everyone and the more people that get involved the better. The great thing about this fun fundraising challenge is that it is accessible to all! Here, our fundraising team have come up with seven great ideas to inspire you to take part.

  1. Walk, wheel, jog, skip, hop, lift or run 2.6 metres, miles, kg or minutes

  2. Complete 26 laps of your garden or living room, just like war veteran Tom Moore

  3. Flip a pancake 26 times

  4. Learn how to say ‘Hello’ in 26 languages or maybe even a sponsored silence

  5. Make a presentation on a topic you enjoy and talk for 26 minutes

  6. Bake 26 cupcakes – maybe deliver them to your family/neighbours, making sure to follow social distancing guidelines

  7. Have a 26-hour ‘readathon’ – how many books can you read during this time?

Please get involved and do something to support MS-UK in a really fun, simple and positive way.

Once you have chosen your challenge all you have to do is follow these simple steps

  1. Dream up your challenge based around the numbers 26 or 2.6

  2. Set up your fundraising challenge page here

  3. Complete your challenge this Sunday

  4. Share your pictures and videos with your family and friends on your social media channels, encourage them to donate to your page and don’t forget to tag us!

And that’s it, your efforts have made a big difference out our charity and the people living with multiple sclerosis that we support! With many fundraising events being cancelled or postponed, we have seen our main sources of income dry-up almost overnight. Our services are needed even more now than before, ensuring people living with multiple sclerosis are still able to access the support they need now more than ever. Please help us to be there for the MS community today, tomorrow and for many years to come so we can ensure that no one has to face MS alone.

Thank you!
