Take Part in the 2.6 Challenge

If you were signed up to take part in the London Marathon, triathlon or maybe even a skydive, then use that energy to support us through the nationwide 2.6 challenge.

This mass event has been created as a fundraising campaign to Save the UK’s Charities, and we’re urging you to get involved and support The Air Ambulance Challenge.

With millions of £s being lost each day due to the impact of COVID-19 on charities, there are 1000s of people who had planned to run the London Marathon this year, why not make it happen in ways that are possible?

You can take partake in any creative way possible that focusses on the number 26 to help raise money for us  – here are  some ideas;
