The 2.6 Challenge!

The 2.6 Challenge

The Virgin Money London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26 April, is the world's biggest one-day fundraising event, which raised more than £66.4 million for thousands of charities in 2019.

As it cannot take place as planned, its organisers have created a "lockdown-friendly event" which is easy for anyone to join in and make a difference, especially for smaller local charities. Every small "event" can add up to something worthwhile.

Capability Scotland, like so many charities across the UK, has been impacted by COVID-19. The need to close some of our services and the cancellation of this summer's planned fundraising events means that income for this year will be significantly reduced.

From Sunday 26 April 2020, the challenge is to dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise by donating on our JustGiving and Virgin Money pages:
