The 2.6 Challenge

Posted on 16 April 2020 by Pippa McClounan


Help save the UK's charities



Join us

Whether you're running around the garden for 2.6 miles, doing 26 press ups with the dog on your back, baking 26 cakes or skipping for 26 minutes, we want your help to save the UK's charities and join Team Tourettes Action!

With nearly all fundraising events being postponed, whilst we are all still hopeful these events will go ahead at a later date, charities across the country have been left struggling to maintain fundraising activities, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Team Tourettes Action needs your support now more than ever. It’s never been more important to come together and show how much we care.


How do I get involved?

No need to be a marathon runner to take part – this is a challenge for all ages and abilities. Just get thinking of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 and complete it on or from Sunday April 26.


We have a handy sheet of Family Friendly ideas to get you started to Download here.


Join the challenge and donate via: Virgin Money Giving or Just Giving


Help us to inspire the nation by sharing pictures or videos of your challenge on social media using the official hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge to be part of the campaign.


Once you’ve done yours, why not nominate someone else to take on The 2.6 Challenge!


And don’t worry if you’re not able to get out of your house or flat for now. We’re not looking for superheroes - we’re looking for Home Heroes.


Social Distancing

Please follow the guidelines from the Government in practicing in social distancing on how to exercise safely during this time. Whatever you can do, you can be part of it – the main thing is getting active, having fun and donating whatever you can to help save the UK’s charities.
