Take part in The 2.6 Challenge for Bristol's hospitals

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to the cancellation of many fundraising events, and the loss of income for charities around the UK. Charities everywhere have been hit hard, and we’re no exception.

That’s why we're joining together with other charities to support the #TwoPointSixChallenge. We're asking you to become home heroes by raising funds for Bristol city centre hospitals from Sunday 26 April

You can support the Bristol City Centre Hospitals Appeal

The Bristol City Centre Hospitals Appeal was launched to raise vital funds to support the immediate physical and emotional wellbeing of frontline NHS staff. Money raised by The 2.6 Challenge will ensure our NHS staff continue to be supported in any way they need over the challenging weeks and months ahead.

What can I do for The 2.6 Challenge? 

To get involved, simply come up with a fun activity centered around 2.6 or 26 and make a donation, or set up a fundraising page so people can sponsor you. Anyone of any age can take part, and you can think up any activity to join in - you could run 2.6 miles, do 26 minutes of a workout for 26 days, flip a pancake 26 times in 26 seconds. The possibilities are endless!

How to take part:

  1. Dream up your 2.6 Challenge – have a look at some 2.6 Challenge inspiration.
  2. Go to our 2.6 Challenge JustGiving page, and either donate your gift or create a fundraising page.
  3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and encourage them to do their own 2.6 Challenge.
  4. Complete your challenge! This can either take place, or start, on Sunday 26 April.
  5. Share your photos and videos of the challenge on social media. Tag Above & Beyond (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn) and add the hashtags #BristolNHSHeroes and #TwoPointSixChallenge

Please note: you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.
