2.6 Challenge - 31 May 2020

The 2.6 Challenge is a simple and fun way for everyone to do their bit to help save the UK’s charities. | View on map

Supporter Care 01372 461808 or

Registration is free

Encouraging supporters to raise £100 minmium, however there is no fixed sponsorship target

The 2.6 Challenge is a simple and fun way for everyone to do their bit to help save the UK’s charities.

This is a challenge for all ages and abilities. All you need to do is think of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 that suits your skills and complete it on or from Sunday 26 April. This could be something as simple as pledging to run 2.6miles as your daily exercise to doing 26 minutes of yoga, or juggling for 26 minutes (or maybe just 2.6 minutes) non-stop.

Check out the ‘how to get involved’ page  for more ideas and inspiration. And don’t worry if you’re not able to get out your house or flat for now – you can do your 2.6 challenge anywhere inside too! There are no rules, apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time. 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 save the UK’s charities.

Remember to use #PAHTwoPointSixChallenge when you post your challenges!

A firewalk is the most inspirational journey you will ever undertake. It is as the name suggests: a bare foot walk over red-hot wood embers measuring around 800 degrees. No tricks, no special effects. Just you and the fire.The decision to walk across the coals is dramatically life changing. Not because you have decided to firewalk in itself, but because you have consciously decided not to let your fear inhibit your actions. Once you take the power away from fear, there is really nothing stopping you. After all if you can walk safely across hot coals what else is possible?

To register for this event please contact our Supporter Care Team on the number/email above.
