Join ‘The 2.6 Challenge’ on Sunday 26 April and raise vital funds for Sense International
19 April 2020
With the current COVID-19 pandemic, many of Sense International’s fundraising events have been postponed or cancelled and we have had to close shops, leaving us with an unexpected shortfall in income. However, now more than ever, Sense International is there for people with deafblindness across the globe.
That’s why we are calling on Sense International supporters to help us through this unprecedented period by taking on ‘The 2.6 Challenge’ to help raise vital funds for Sense International.
What is ‘The 2.6 Challenge’?
We are encouraging you to think of an activity, any activity, based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and complete it on Sunday 26 April.
There are no rules on what you can do but please do continue to follow the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time.
What can I do?
Anything at all! We have picked some of our favourite ideas to give you a bit of inspiration.
- Run, walk, hop or roll 2.6 miles or kilometres
- Cycle 26 miles in fancy dress
- Try out those circus tricks and juggle for 26 minutes
- Donate what you would spend on your commute or weekly coffee
- See if you can complete 26 keepy-uppies in a row
- Make 26 holes-in-one in your very own living room golf course
How will I be helping?
Now more than ever, Sense International is committed to supporting people with deafblindness in Bangladesh, India, Kenya, Nepal, Tanzania, Peru, Romania and Uganda. We are one of the world’s leading international organisations working for people with deafblindness and their families. Just as we are needed more than ever, we are unable to raise funds through our shops and fundraising events as we would have planned. It’s a perfect storm and we need your help to see us through it.
We know that every single supporter of Sense International is a hero, but now we need you to become a Home Hero to help us through this unprecedented crisis.
