We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26th April to help support people trapped in modern slavery who have been impacted the coronavirus crisis.

The pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of millions in fundraising income to help transform lives.

In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the UK have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds for good causes who’ve been affected.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

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 Anti-Slavery International to help ensure we can be there for everyone who needs us, now and in the long term.
