Between Sunday 26th April - Thursday 30th April, Dig Deep is taking part in one of the biggest national fundraising events ever to be held - The 2.6 Challenge.

It's an opportunity to come together, shake off those lockdown blues and raise vital funds for those most in need around the world.

The COVID-19 pandemic has already had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in fundraising income.


Our health and hand-washing education with communities is more important than ever with COVID-19 reaching Kenya. However, we've seen our income fall significantly during this pandemic right when the need is greatest. 


The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April - which should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world's biggest one-day annual fundraising event - but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.


To get involved you just need to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26. You could walk, run or cycle 2.6 miles, juggle for 2.6 minutes or host a quiz with 26 questions; the ideas and options are endless, be creative and have fun with it!

You can set up a dedicated fundraising page for the 2.6 Challenge campaign so your friends and family can donate to join you, support you or take on their own challenge for Dig Deep. 

In this time of isolation and social distancing, this is a chance for us to all virtually pull together, achieve something extraordinary and ensure that those who are most in need continue to receive the help and support during these most challenging of times.

We really hope you'll be able to join the Dig Deep team and the rest of the nation in taking on The 2.6 Challenge.
