We need your help...

We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in the 2.6 Challenge, a fund-raising campaign to help UK charities that have lost vital fundraising income because of the cancellation of thousands of fund-raising events.

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 UK charities. The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April on what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon.

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Riding for the Disabled (Woodbridge & District Group).

People of all ages are taking on the 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless! The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Many people are taking part on Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just five simple steps to take:
1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here, and also a Family Activity Pack that you can download.
2. Head to Virgin Money Giving and set up a fundraising page (you will need to register if you don’t have an account but that is quick and easy).
3. Select the 2.6 Challenge event and choose Riding for the Disabled (Woodbridge & District Group) as your supported charity.
4. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you or challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge activity

5. Complete your challenge.
