Support Palace for Life with the 2.6 Challenge

Join the nationwide 2.6 challenge to support Palace for Life Foundation.

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.

The Virgin Money London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26 April, raised more than £66.4 million for thousands of charities in 2019.

As it cannot take place as planned, organisers have created a lockdown-friendly event which is easy for anyone to join and make a difference. Everyone taking part simply needs to pledge to take on a challenge and support a charity of their choice.

Join the campaign!

Get involved

On Sunday 26 April, 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 a nearby park (in line with the Government rules), holding an online workout with 26 of your friends, doing 26 keepie-uppies or bench-pressing 26 kilos with your grandchildren.

Have a look at Virgin Money Giving’s 26 family-friendly activities for inspiration.
