the 2.6 challenge

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of a large amount of fundraising income. In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise funds to help UK charities.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on 26 April. 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 an area of our hospitals not in the Covid-19 spotlight right now… for example, the Renal Unit, The Sussex Eye Hospital, Sussex Cancer Centre, our elderly care wards, neurology care, or physio teams.

To get started, follow these 5 steps:

  1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge
  2. Head to the BSUH Charity 2.6 challenge website and donate or set up your fundraising page
  3. Ask friends and family to sponsor you or do their own challenge
  4. Complete your challenge
  5. Share a video or photo of your challenge on social media and tag @BSUHCharity, remember to use #TwoPointSixChallenge

Can’t wait to see your challenge! Thank you!
