23 April 2020

As a small charity, we are working hard to keep our organisation and its work in our community going. We want to ask you to join us and take part in The 2.6 Challenge.

The 2.6 Challenge is a collective effort of thousands of event organisers and charities to Save the UK’s Charities. The challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April, what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon.

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support YMCA North London via twopointsixchallenge.co.uk. You can join our event by clicking below or create your own challenge.

People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The options are endless!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever suits you.

There are just 3 simple steps to take:

1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here
2. Head to twopointsixchallenge.co.uk and search for YMCA North London to donate £26 – or whatever you can afford ­or to set up a fundraising page and ask your friends and family to sponsor you
3. Complete your challenge and share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge and @YMCA_NL (Instagram & Twitter) or @YMCANL.UK (Facebook)

We hope you’ll join us for The 2.6 Challenge to support YMCA North London and
help continue our vital community work.
