Join The 2.6 Challenge

Run 2.6 miles, 2.6 laps of a blindfolded obstacle course or 26 blindfolded taste challenges.

Sign up for the 2.6 Challenge today and do anything around the numbers 2.6 or 26.

With your support, we can be there for people living with sight loss at a time that matters most.

We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April to help people living with sight loss at a time when it matters most.

Will you be a home hero? Join the nations challenge and make a local difference, by raising money for 4Sight Vision Support today.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities.

The demand for our specialist services has increased, but income has dropped as we have had to postpone or cancel popular fundraising events.

In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities. The 2.6 Challenge!

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise / donate to support 4Sight Vision Support. People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends.

The ideas and options are endless!

How about an extra challenge for our amazing supporters?

Why not up your challenge with a blindfolded element* – Dine in the Dark, blindfolded dinner / taste test? Or perhaps a garden obstacle course? Turn out the lights and use scarfs as blind folds – raise awareness & vital funds to support people living with sight loss.

Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

Together, we can ensure people with sight loss continue to receive the specialist sight care advice and emotional support they need at a time when it matters most.

All the best to our home hero’s!

*Please plan your activity, make sure it is safe, at or near your home and that it adheres to Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing during the lockdown so we don’t add extra strain to the NHS.
