Be a lock down champion for GIST Cancer UK and take part in the Nation’s 2.6 challenge!

On Sunday 26 April the London Marathon was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak and it is likely that many other events that would normally involve our fantastic #GISTCANCERUK & #PAWSGIST supporters will also not go ahead this year.

So, we are hoping that you can have some fun while in lock down and raise vital funds to support our charity.

The 2.6 Challenge is for everyone! Whether you get sponsored to run 2.6 miles, walk your dog for 26 laps of your garden (try not to get dizzy!), or make a donation of £26.20, you’ll be helping to continue our work supporting GIST Cancer patients and funding GIST cancer research.

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.

Some people started on Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just six simple steps to take:

  1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge
  2. Head to our Justgiving or Virginmoneygiving pages to donate £26 – or whatever you can afford to GISTCANCERUK or PAWS-GIST– or set up a fundraising page.
  3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge
  4. Complete your challenge
  5. Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge #GISTCANCERUK #PAWSGIST
  6. HAVE FUN!

We hope you’ll join the nation in The 2.6 Challenge to support GISTCANCERUK and help to save the UK’s charities.
