Caring Matters Now 2.6 Challenge

We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in the 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 25th April 2021 to help Caring Matters Now to continue its work supporting children and adults affected by Congenital Melanocytic Naevi.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on our charity’s income, with the cancellation of our major fundraising events throughout 2020. So, following the huge success of the 2020 2.6 Challenge which raised an incredible £11,000, we thought this was a reason to do it again in 2021!

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Caring Matters Now.

People of all ages can take 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! Here is a list of 26 challenges you could take on!

There are just four simple steps to take:
