The 2.6 Challenge for #TeamPCA

Join us for the 2.6 challenge on Sunday 26th April and help save the UK’s charities. The coronavirus pandemic has had a catastrophic effect across the sector with events being cancelled and an estimated loss of around £4 billion. 

What is the 2.6 challenge for #TeamPCA?

On Sunday 26th April, charities are asking people to get involved with the 2.6 challenge to show your support for the causes close to your heart.  Will you join with #TeamPCA?

Become our hero!

The #TwoPointSixChallenge is your chance to be a Home Hero and raise vital funds for Pancreatic Cancer Action from your very own living room, bedroom, balcony or garden! 

There are no rules – apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time. The main thing is to have fun, be active and support PCA by pledging to raise what you can.  

Ideas for everyone:

All you need to do is dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 that suits you and your skills and get it done on Sunday 26th April 2020 – the original date for the 40th London Marathon.  

Here are some ideas to get you started: 

  • Challenge yourself to 26 press ups 
  • Do 26 football keepie uppies or headers 
  • Skip for 2.6 minutes 
  • Run 2.6 miles or for 26 mins (indoors on a treadmill or outdoors) 
  • Stretch with 26 minutes of pilates or yoga 
  • Take your pooch out for a 26-minute walk 
  • Put on your favourite playlist and dance for 26 mins or to 26 songs 
  • Set up a zoom workout and invite 26 friends! 

The possibilities really are endless!

The list could go on, but this shows how EASY and ACCESSIBLE it is for everyone to get involved and help support PCA during this unnerving time.
