The 2.6 Challenge

Event Details 26 April 2020 | This is a lockdown-friendly event - please take part from home Register

To take part in the 2.6 Challenge for Oasis Community Housing couldn’t be easier.

Did you know it takes 26 muscles to smile?*

All you need to do is smile, take a photo, and donate £2.60.There’s a donate button at the top of this page, or you can find us on JustGiving.

Share your selfie with 26 friends and ask them to do the same. For less than the price of a coffee, we can bring #HopeNotHomelessness to thousands of people by supporting our key workers.

And it doesn’t need to stop there. The 2.6 challenge is all about having fun and saving the UK’s charities.

Our staff have dreamed up all sorts of ways to fundraise and donate, all linked to the numbers 2 and 6. Here are some of the ways they’ll be taking part on and from Sunday.

– cycling 2.6 miles with the kids
– trampolining for 26 minutes
– running 2.6 miles a day for 10 days (the equivalent of a marathon)

If you want to do more than raise a smile, just register using the button on the right and set up your own JustGiving page.

Want to be involved but need a little more help? No problem. Contact our super friendly support team
by emailing and they will be happy to support you.

Thank you.

*With special thanks to North East fundraising legend, Big Pink Dress, who worked out it takes 26 muscles to smile, and who has kindly agreed to support our 2.6 Challenge. Thank you, Colin, you’re amazing!
