2.6 Challenge – raising funds for the Ayrshire Hospice

#TwoPointSixChallenge for the Ayrshire Hospice

With the London Marathon cancelled due to Covid19, a huge number of charities will miss out on funds the thousands of runners would have raised for the vital work they do.

And so was born the #TwoPointSixChallenge where charities are encouraging people to take on a challenge relating to the number 26 (the number of miles in a marathon) or 2.6 and ask their friends and families to sponsor them.

Some people have decided to run or walk 2.6k, others are taking part in a quiz with 26 participants – the possibilities are endless.

Given we were unable to celebrate Easter in the way we normally would, I decided to dig out my Easter Bunny costume and cycle round Troon, as part of my daily exercise, to raised funds for the wonderful Ayrshire Hospice.

The weather was beautiful, if a little warm for cycling in a bunny costume, and it was lovely to get lots of supportive waves and thumbs up as I passed through the town.

A huge thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far. If you would like to support this amazing charity, you can do so at my Just Giving page
