2.6 Challenge

Join the 2.6 movement! 

26th April would have been one of the biggest fundraising days of the year, thanks to the London Marathon, which raised £66.4 million for charities in 2019. In response, we have signed up to the The 2.6 Challenge, a nationwide fundraising campaign to Save the UK’s Charities.  

We are inviting you to come up with a challenge activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to Solace to help us ensure women and children can #StaySafeAtHome.   

1. Choose your activity. 

  • Walk/run 2.6 miles or for 26 minutes? 
  • A 26 minute yoga practice? 
  • Star jumps for 26 minutes? 
  • 26 laps of your garden? 
  • Anything that gets you moving to support Solace – choose the activity that works for you! 

2. Set up your fundraising page. 

*With every donation made, Solace gets a percentage of the central funding pot from the campaign, meaning your fundraising will go even further to supporting women to #StaySafeAtHome.  

3. Follow our 26 minute Spotify playlist

We have curated a list of feel-good songs from powerful women to keep you motivated through your challenge! Listen here
