Help Save UK’s Charities
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant the cancellation of thousands of charity fundraising events and the loss of billions in fundraising income!
In response, 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 save UK’s charities.
From Sunday 26 April, join the rest of the UK for the 2.6 Challenge as part of the Get Kids Going! team. It's never been more important to come together and show how much you care.
We’d love you to get involved...
The #TwoPointSixChallenge is a fantastic way to raise funds for Get Kids Going! from your bedroom, bathroom, living room, balcony, garden or park... everyone can join in!
All we are asking you to do is come up with an idea around the numbers of 2.6 or 26.
