Join the nation and take on the 2.6 challenge for Dogs for Good.
From 2.6 to 26. It’s your choice. Your challenge. Your cause.
The Covid-19 pandemic is having a catastrophic effect on UK charities leading to an estimated loss of £4 billion for the sector. You may have heard of the 2.6 Challenge – the UK’s mass participation sports event industry has come together to create this nationwide fundraising campaign to Save the UK’s Charities. For many charities, 26 April would have been the biggest fundraising day of the year thanks to the London Marathon, the world’s biggest one day fundraising event which raised £66.4 million for charities in 2019.
Dogs for Good is involved and we’d love you to take the Challenge to raise funds for us so we can continue to train our life-changing dogs.
How do I get involved?
The idea is – challenge yourself to take part in an activity such as:
- Throw and catch a ball 26 times
- Take your dog for a 26 minute walk
- Complete 26 laps of the garden on foot, running, cycling, on your scooter or on roller skates
- Put on some music and dance for 26 minutes
- Run 2.6 miles or for 26 minutes (indoors, outdoors or on the spot)
- Challenge yourself to 26 press-ups
- Do 26 football ‘keepie-uppies’ or headers
- Skip for 2.6 minutes without any mistakes
- Find Dogs for Good on JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving to set up your fundraising page
- Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you
- Complete your 2.6 challenge!
