The 2.6 Challenge
Southampton University Medical Student, Will Halpin, raised money for us by walking continuously for 26 hours, with 26 pounds of weight in his rucksack: that is almost as three times as long as Mount Everest, with roughly 18 basketballs on your back. Not only that, Will raised a phenomenal £1,474. Well done and thank you so much.

We’ve also seen dogs doing 26 tricks; kids painting 26 rocks; couples competing in 26 board games and members of our crew planking for 2.6 minutes – some of the team somehow planked for five minutes and 20 seconds.
A huge thank you to everyone who got involved, kindly donated and shared your fantastic videos. There’s still plenty of time to play your part: you can complete your own challenge by Friday 1 May.
Your donations mean we can keep saving lives. Donate here.
