CALLING ALL HOME HEROES

Sunderland AFC’s official charity, the Foundation of Light is asking fans to join the nation for ‘The 2.6 Challenge’ with the aim of raising vital funds to help save UK charities in these difficult times.

Taking place on Sunday 26th April, the day the Virgin Money London Marathon would have taken place, the 2.6 Challenge is national campaign which encourages people to take part in an activity based around the number 2.6 or 26 to raise vital funds for the work in the community.

COVID-19 has taken its toll on just about every aspect of everyday life and organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events have come together to create the challenge.

Working with tens of thousands each year throughout Wearside, the Foundation uses the power of football to improve people’s lives by tackling societal issues, such as social isolation, obesity, unemployment and anti-social behaviour.

Jamie Wright, Managing Director of the Foundation of Light explains why the 2.6 challenge can make a difference in the local community: “The 2.6 challenge is a simple way for people of all ages and abilities to help. Whether you’re running around the balcony/garden for 2.6 miles, doing 26 keepy ups or running up and down the stairs 26 times, this is a fun and innovative to help.

The UK charity sector estimates it will lose £4 billion in income as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. With hundreds of events postponed and charities like ours having to reduce or stop services at a time when the vulnerable members of society need it the most we need help from our community to protect the most vulnerable.

“Most people will be taking part on Sunday 26th April, but you can do it at a time that is most convenient for you. We are not looking for superheroes, we are looking for home heroes. So, get together with your family, be creative, have fun and make a difference.”

For ideas on what you could do as part of The 2.6 Challenge download the activity pack.

Money raised can be donated to the Foundation of Light through JustGiving.

The sky is the limit and the only requirement is that you follow government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.

To show your support visit JustGiving to make your donation and help inspire the nation by sharing picture or videos of your challenge on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages using the official hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge.
