With all fundraising postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Walk the Walk, like thousands of charities, have had to stop making grants or funding of services at a time when those with cancer need them most. The 2.6 Challenge is a simple way for everyone to help save UK charities. All you have to do is pick a challenge and either fundraise or make a donation!

This really is for everyone, and you can do any activity you like for a time, or of a distance as long as it is 26 or 2.6 and as crazy and creative as you can make it… you could walk, run, hop or skip 2.6 miles on your balcony, in your garden or around a nearby park, as long as it is within the government guidelines… hold an online workout with 26 of your friends, juggle for 26 minutes, and even watch box sets for 26 hours without falling asleep!


If you need any help, then please get in touch

Walk The Walk Hero 2.6

2.6 miles and beyond!

How can you support Walk the Walk?

To start fundraising for Walk the Walk 

  1. Dream up your challenge - use our ideas below or get creative!
  2. Set up your fundraising page for Walk the Walk (this is the really important bit!)
  3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you. Or make a donation to yourself!
  4. Complete your 2.6 Challenge!
  5. Share pictures or videos of your challenge on social media using the official hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge to be part of the campaign.


Or if you don't feel in the mood to fundraise then a donation of £2.62, £6.20, £26.20 or whatever you can afford is hugely welcome!

As a grant making charity, many breast cancer charities across the UK depend on our support and we are already seeing an increase in the demands for grants. Those living with cancer and those just being diagnosed are having a tough time, not least of living with the fear of not getting the treatment they need, and not least of all going through treatment alone because of self-isolation and the fear of becoming ill.

By supporting us with your 2.6 Challenge, you will be helping us to really make a difference to those living with cancer, when they need us most.

Fabulous fundraising ideas

Here are our top crazy ideas..but the sky (or your lounge!) really is the limit

  1. 3 legged, 5 legged or even a 7 legged family walk… or 3 people and a dog… 26 times around the garden… Steady now!
  2. Yeeeha! 26 minutes of a grapevine dance routine to ‘I will walk 500 miles’ or a similar tune!
  3. Power walk 2.6 miles as fast as you can… set the time and meet the challenge!
  4. 26 Star jumps without stopping
  5. Skip… skip... for 26 minutes with or without a rope!
  6. Early readers – try reading 26 pages of a book without taking a break
  7. 26 planks, squats, or lunges, or… my goodness all 3… WOW!
  8. Cycle for 26 minutes
  9. Jabba –Jabba talk or dance non-stop for 26 minutes or 2.6 hours!!!
  10. Hold a  virtual tea party and every one donates £2.62 for the cuppa!
  11. Knit or crochet 26 squares in 2.6 hours to start making a  blanket… or 260 to complete it… how long would that take?!
  12. The pancake challenge, how many can you eat in 2.6 minutes!

Staying safe

If your chosen challenge is outside and in a public space, it is important to follow the Government Guidelines for social distancing and keeping at least 2 mtrs (6ft). distance between yourself and anyone else. And don’t forget, it is suggested each of us should spend approximately 1 hour a day being active


Walking Etiquette
 

Be kind to others whilst out on the street, just follow this simple code;

  1. Aim to keep to your side of the road and to avoid others that are walking or running.
  2. If you see someone walking or running towards you on the same side of the street, a simple hand signal ahead of getting too close, and you can agree who will cross over the road.
  3. If it is not possible to cross over or avoid the person coming towards you, stand back in a driveway or as far back as possible and let the other person go past, unless they stop and signal you to go forward.


Be kind…Be considerate…Be safe!

Signed up for a challenge in 2020?

Please note that this is a separate challenge to anything else that you may have signed up to take part in. So any funds you raise won't be allocated to your event fundraising but they will be very gratefully received.

 

As you know, our wonderful MoonWalks are all on hold. The events will be rolled forward and we know that you are all urgently waiting for news, as are we. Currently, we do have a potential date in the Autumn and we are also looking at 2021. In both cases, we are waiting for government guidelines in relation to holding events and the earliest this has been promised is sometime in June. Just like you, we are patiently waiting for some guidance and as soon as we have any, you can be sure, we will let you all know.

 

In the meantime, it is of huge concern that our fundraising has almost stopped, and in turn has a huge impact on our benefiting charities, many of which are working on the front line of cancer and struggling to keep going. A lot to try and consider but at the heart of our planning is the health and well-being of our supporters and the Walk the Walk staff, without which we would not be able to consider how to go forward. Events will take place, not only when we have permission but also when we feel it is safe to do so. In the meantime, your continued support is very much appreciated no matter how small… many people can move a mountain, so I know you will be there to help us continue to make a difference where it is needed now more than ever. See more here.

See what it's all about!
