Challengers run, cycle, scooter, and plank to raise over £12,000 as part of #TwoPointSixChallenge campaign

On what would have been the date of the London Marathon, over 43 individual fundraising challenges for the Foundation kicked off on Sunday, as part of the #TwoPointSixChallenge.

As per the national campaign’s 2.6 theme, challenges dreamt up by our band of fundraisers included a 26-minute plank, 2,600 kick-ups and a 26-mile bike ride.

With many of the challenges still ongoing, early indications show that the challenge has raised over £12,000 for the Community Sports Foundation so far.

Those leading the fundraising charge include staff, volunteers, trustees, programme participants and their families, as well as those just inspired to support our work.

At a time when vital income streams have been cut off, the #TwoPointSixChallenge is a national campaign aimed at raising funds for UK charities.

The money raised will support many of our usual projects that help people with disabilities or people from disadvantaged backgrounds, but also the Canaries COVID-19 Community Project.

Recently set-up with Norwich City Football Club, the project is helping the county’s short-term response to the crisis and will also allow us to deliver longer-term projects that help those who have been negatively impacted by issues such as inactivity, poor mental health or loss of employment or housing.

Scroll down to see some of the amazing fundraising efforts from our fundraisers, and, remember, it’s not too late to join the challenge:
