Can you take up the 2.6 Challenge for KPC?

Posted on

KPC  is  taking part in the 2.6 Challenge and really needs YOUR support! The event has been created to help charities like us, who have had a big loss in income due to the current crisis, but really want to be there to help out again, once things are “back to normal”.  We want to be able to restart our provision, and ensure we meet the needs of young people, and for them to be the best they can.

Beginning on Sunday 26 April (what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon) – we are asking supporters to dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fund-raise around this.

The number challenge could be anything – 2.6 miles, 2.6 km. 26 press ups. 26 times up and down the stairs. 26 pancake flips. Anything with a 2 and a 6 (as long as it follows the government’s advice on exercise and social distancing). Participants can get things started by donating whatever they can afford to themselves and then encourage their friends and families to get involved and donate as well.

This is a great and fun way of raising some funds for KPC (and give you a fantastic purpose during the lock-down!) PLUS the challenge can be whatever anyone wants!

We are aware that a lot of you have already been generously supporting front line and the NHS charities – so realise you may already feel you’ve given what you can. This is more about ensuring the future of us smaller charities to ensure we survive the crisis.

This opportunity is so important to us and the future of KPC … we hope you can support us – and have a brilliant time doing your challenge! We’d love to see any photos so we can share on our Social Media too!
