During lockdown Street League’s focus is to reduce the devastating impact of the coronavirus crisis on vulnerable young people and help them to navigate this uncertainty as effectively as possible, and we need your help.

We are inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge to help to save the UK’s charities. The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Street League at twopointsixchallenge.justgiving.com. The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like –from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends.

Set up your 2.6 Challenge fundraising page now

Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. After all, we’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes.

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April, but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just five simple steps to take:

  1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here
  2. Head to twopointsixchallenge.co.uk to set up your fundraising page or donate
  3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge
  4. Complete your challenge
  5. Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge and #TeamStreetLeague
