2.6 Challenge

2.6 Challenge

Whether you run 2.6 miles or do 260 jumps on the trampoline… anything goes! Just choose your activity and help raise money for Mummy’s Star.

With many of our fundraising events being postponed or cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are looking for ways to keep raising essential funds to help our families, while ensuring our supporters stay safe by following the government guidelines.

What is the 2.6 challenge?
The fantastic thing about the 2.6 Challenge is that you and your family can interpret it however you like! Think of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 and complete it on, or from Sunday April 26. It could be anything from running 2.6 miles to doing 26 ‘keepy upies’ or 26 minutes of yoga… everything counts.

It is easy to get involved:

If you would prefer to make a donation rather than ask for sponsorship, please donate to Mummy’s Star 2.6 Challenge page, please donate here.

There are no rules (apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time). The main thing is to get active, have fun and raise money to help Mummy’s Star.

If you want to discuss this with us first, please click here to get in touch.

What will the money be used for?
All the money raised through the 2.6 challenge will ensure that mums and families can receive the support they need, when they need it.

Covid-19 has impacted everyone, but for our mums it has added extra worry at an already difficult and distressing time. Mummy’s Star wants to be able to offer more support to mums and continue to give out grants to families in need, but we need your help to ensure this is possible in the future.

Why 2.6?
The 2.6 Challenge is a nationwide fundraising campaign which has been launched by the UK’s mass participation industry and Justgiving in response to COVID-19. Sunday 26th April 2020 would have been the 40th London Marathon, one of the UK’s largest charity events. To mark the amazing fundraising efforts of the London Marathon and other events around the UK the challenge has been based around the number 26.
