The Mulberry Centre - for anyone affected by cancer Heart

Take on the 2.6 Challenge




Join The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April

With hundreds of fundraising events postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, thousands of charities have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most.  We estimate a shortfall of £30,000.  The 2.6 Challenge is a simple way for everyone to help save the UK’s charities.

We are delighted to join this initiative and hope you will too.

From Sunday 26 April, the day when the Virgin Money London Marathon would have taken place, we are asking you to join the rest of the UK for The 2.6 Challenge.


Your #TwoPointSixChallenge can be any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles on your balcony or around nearby park (in line with the Government guidelines), holding a quiz or an online workout with 26 of your friends, doing 26 press-ups with the dog on your back or baking 26 cakes!


You can have a look at The Family Activity Pack or use our ideas The Mulberry Centre A-Z of fundraising to inspire you.


Whatever you can do, you can be a part of it – the main thing is to get active, have fun and pledge whatever you can to help us to be there for anyone who is affected by cancer – especially at a time when it’s needed most.

I’ll be riding my indoor bike a total distance of 2.6km as part of the #twopointsixchallenge on April 26th 2020. However, this will be vertical distance climbed, rather than the flat distance, which is the same as riding up a large Alpine Mountain. See picture of the Grande Balmaz mountain in France – also 2.6km high.


We’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes.
