Join The 2.6 Challenge

22 April, 2020

On Sunday 26 April, the day when the Virgin Money London Marathon would have taken place, become a Home Hero for HIOWAA and take on The 2.6 Challenge.

The nationwide effort aims to support charities, like ours, who have had to cancel or postpone important fundraising events.

Join the rest of the UK and take part in a fundraising challenge of your choice. The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like, from flipping a pancake 26 times to walking 2.6 miles up and down your stairs, the opportunities are endless.

To help get you started we’ve come up with our own challenge: The HIOWAA Alphabet Challenge. Check out our Facebook page to find out how to get involved.

• Run 26 laps of your garden
• Juggle for 26 minutes
