Join the rest of the nation in the 2.6 challenge

Help support our work and become a home hero!

2.6 blog post

This Sunday 26 April, we are inviting our supporters to take part in the UK’s 2.6 challenge! The virtual fundraising event aims to raise £67 million for UK charities on the day that the London Marathon was due to take place. All you need to do to take part is think of a sponsored activity based around the number 26 or 2.6 and raise funds to support our work – all in the comfort of your own home!

“This is a great opportunity for people to get involved in something fun and positive during this challenging time” says Sarah Thorn, Community and Partnerships Manager at Lymphoma Action. “From Leaping for Lymphoma for 26 minutes, to jogging round your garden for 2.6 miles, there are many ways that you can get involved and support our work in continuing to make sure that no one has to face lymphoma alone.”

Don’t forget to share pictures or videos of your challenge with us on social media using the official hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge!
