Cerebra, like many charities across the country, have had to put a lot of fundraising plans on hold and with what would have been the 40th London Marathon not going ahead as planned, it’s become a very difficult time.
That’s why the organisers of the biggest mass participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help our fundraising and save the UK’s charities.
From Sunday 26th April, which would have been London Marathon day, we ask you to create your own fundraising challenge based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 – the only requirement is that the activity must follow the Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing and remember to stay local.
There’s so many fun things you could do! You could run or bike ride for 2.6 miles, do 26 star jumps or even hop on each leg 26 times! It’s entirely up to you!
Just think of your challenge, set up your fundraising page and ask friends and family to make a small donation. And if you’re not shy, we’d really love it if you could film your challenge, share on your social media with the hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge and tag Cerebra so we can see it.
We recently launched our #Together campaign to let the children and families that need us know that we’re still here. We’re still at the end of the phone to give advice and support, we’re still helping families through our Sleep and Legal Entitlements services and we’re still carrying out life-changing research.
We can’t so this alone, but taking part in the 2.6 Challenge for Cerebra is a great way to join together and let these children and families know we’re still here for them.
If you’ve already got a great idea for your 2.6 Challenge, then please do set up your fundraising page today and select Cerebra as your charity. Thank you so much for your support and remember, have fun and stay safe!
