Join Sense for The 2.6 Challenge!

26 April 2020

Join ‘The 2.6 Challenge’, to raise vital funds for Sense.

With the current COVID-19 pandemic, many of Sense’s fundraising events have been postponed or cancelled and we have had to close shops, leaving us with an unexpected shortfall in income. However, now more than ever, Sense is there for everyone with complex disabilities, supporting children, adults and their families.

That’s why we are calling on every member of Team Sense to help us through this unprecedented period by taking on ‘The 2.6 Challenge’ to help raise vital funds for Sense.

What is ‘The 2.6 Challenge’?

We are encouraging you to think of an activity, any activity, based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and complete it on Sunday 26th April.

There are no rules on what you can do but please do continue to follow the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time.

What can I do?

Anything at all! We have picked some of our favourite ideas to give you a bit of inspiration.

  • Run, walk, hop or roll 2.6 miles or kilometres
  • Cycle 26 miles in fancy dress
  • Try out those circus tricks and juggle for 26 minutes
  • Donate what you would spend on your commute or weekly coffee
  • See if you can complete 26 keepy-uppies in a row
  • Make 26 holes-in-one in your very own living room golf course

How will I be helping?

Now more than ever, Sense is committed to being there to make sure that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities is isolated, left out or unable to fulfil their potential. Our staff are on the frontline of this crisis, supporting children, adults and their families through this scary and uncertain time. Just as we are needed more than ever, we are unable to raise funds through our shops and fundraising events as we would have planned. It’s a perfect storm and we need your help to see us through it.

We know that every single member of Team Sense is a hero, but now we need you to become a Home Hero to help us through this unprecedented crisis.
