The cancellation of thousands of fundraising events has left a huge hole in charity income contributing to a massive £4 billion shortfall for the crucial work they do for so many people. Many charities are now facing closure.
We want to help. At Running High, we have teamed up with other UK event organisers to create The 2.6 Challenge, beginning on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one day annual fundraising event which raised £66.4 million in 2019.
From Sunday 26 April, we’re asking you to dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to your chosen charity to help Save the UK’s Charities. Anything you like (as long as it follows the government’s advice on exercise and social distancing).
