Take on the Two Point Six Challenge!!
We’re excited to share with you the new nationwide fundraising campaign, the #TwoPointSixChallenge!
With many fundraising events being postponed, whilst we are still hopeful these events will go ahead at a later date, charities across the country have been left struggling to maintain their services, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Within the BDD Community we have seen a huge increase in the number of people reaching out for support.
The UK’s event industry has come together with Justgiving and Virgin Money Giving to create The 2.6 Challenge, a nationwide fundraising campaign launched in response to COVID-19 to Save the UK's Charities.
Be a Home Hero
From Sunday 26th April 2020 (the day the 40th edition of the London Marathon would have taken place), take on a challenge of your choice relating to the number 26 or 2.6. No need to be a marathon runner to take part – this is a challenge for all ages and abilities. You can be as creative as you like! Create a Justgiving or Virgin Money Giving page and select us as your charity of choice - then please get sponsorship from friends and family! Why not consider taking on something that challenges your BDD!!
Here are some fun ideas:
- 26 laps around your block
- a 2.6 mile run
- 26 minutes of yoga
- 26 backflips
- holding the plank for 2.6 minutes
- 26 press ups with your dog on your back
- run up and down the stairs 26 times
Think outside the box and choose a challenge to help the BDD Foundation through this difficult period.
