Join thousands of charities across the UK in a mass participation fundraising event designed to help charities survive the COVID-19 pandemic.
ARC have already lost thousands as a result of COVID-19 and this number will continue to rise. We rely heavily on funds from events such as the London Marathon to keep our services going.
Pregnancy can be anxiety-laden even at the best of times, and a global pandemic will only increase stress and anxiety. We are continuing to provide information and emotional support around antenatal testing and its consequences via email and telephone. We want to ensure we can continue our services over the coming months and need your help to do so.
Set up by the UK's biggest mass participation fundraising event organisers, the challenge aims to raise millions for charities in their time of need. The idea is simple, and anyone can get involved. All you need to do is think of an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and complete it from Sunday 26 April. We have put together a list of possible ideas below, but essentially as long as you follow government guidelines on social distancing, you can be as creative as you want!
Once you have decided how you want to take on the 2.6 Challenge, you can either make a donation of £26 or set up a fundraising page so your friends and family can sponsor you. Fundraising pages can be set up through either Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving. There will also be a central pot that will get shared out between participating charities on a weekly basis.
