The 2.6 Challenge

Calling all Home Heroes – join the rest of the nation in the 2.6 Challenge on the 26 April

With many fundraising events being postponed until later in the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, opportunities to support and fundraise for PSPA’s vital services have been severely limited during what is usually a very busy time of year.

The coronavirus and resulting lockdown, means our support services are needed now more than ever. From supporting people living with PSP & CBD; to supporting their family members and friends; as well as healthcare professionals who may have never heard of the conditions before. It’s never been more important to come together to support the services and research which will help us get closer to the care today and the cure tomorrow.

Help us to share this campaign


Whether you’re running around the balcony for 2.6 miles, doing 26 press-ups with the dog on your back or bench pressing 26 kilos with your grandchildren, we want you to help PSPA raise much need funds.

Help us to inspire others by sharing pictures or videos of your challenge on social media using the official hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge to be part of the campaign.

How do I get involved?

No need to be a marathon runner to take part – this is a challenge for all ages and abilities. Just get thinking of an activity-based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 and complete it on or from Sunday 26 April.

It could be something as simple as running 2.6 miles, 26 minutes of yoga, or juggling for 26 minutes – or on second thoughts, maybe just 2.6 minutes! Check out the official website or download the fact sheet for more information about why the 2.6 Challenge was created.

Fun ideas for brilliant families

And don’t worry if you’re not able to get out your house or flat for now. We’re not looking for superheroes – we’re looking for Home Heroes.

There are no rules (apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time). Whatever you can do, you can be part of it – the main thing is getting active, having fun and donating whatever you can to help PSPA
