Scores of Foundation of Light supporters have spent this past weekend bouncing, cycling, hopping, signing and so much more, all in aid of Sunderland AFC’s official charity.
The London Marathon was due to take place on Sunday and in lieu of that, fundraisers were called upon to get creative at home as part of the 2.6 Challenge – an activity of any type they wanted, that incorporated the numbers 2 and 6.
It didn’t take long; there was 26 letters of the alphabet signed; 2.6 mile runs and Sunderland AFC Ladies captain Keira Ramshaw even made up her own circuit – with 26 reps, of course!
Like the London Marathon, the Foundation’s annual Cycle Challenge has fallen victim to COVID-19, but that didn’t deter the enthusiastic bikers – they were back in the saddle for the cause clocking up 26 miles and one early bird took it to the next level notching 62 miles on his pedometer.
Glyn Jenkins was one rider back in action and he was more than happy to get stuck into the challenge: “It’s great to be able to continue to support the Foundation’s amazing work despite the current restriction preventing the 2020 Cycle Challenge taking place!”
👊 Big Monday morning shout-out to our fundraising heroes who ran, jumped, cycled, signed their way through the #TwoPointSixChallenge#MondayMotivation
