What is the Twopointsix challenge?
The twopointsix challenge was created by the organisers of the London Marathon in response to the Covid-19 pandemic the organisers came up with the idea of the twopointsix challenge in order to enable UK charities to fundraise. The marathon should have been ran on: 26/4/20 but will be postponed until a later date.
Getting involved and Challenge ideas
The twopointsix challenge is designed to represent the 26 miles of a marathon. However, you don’t have to be a runner to join in. You could get together with 26 friends on zoom for an online workout, hula hoop 26 times, tell 26 jokes, go for 2.6-mile walk/run. To take part in the challenge you can tailor the activity to yourself and as long as is correlates to 26 or 2.6 it counts!
• If you would like donate to 2.6 challenge contact us. To watch this video again simply re-fresh your browser window! •
If you decide to start fundraising please follow government guidelines to keep yourself and others safe.
Staff members from Regen:fx Youth Trust undertook individual activities as part of the challenge for example 26 star jumps in roller skates, juggling 26 times, 26 mile cycle and spotting 26 rainbows in one of the local communities we work in.
We then used the 26 rainbows dedicated to the NHS designed by local children to a ‘spot your rainbow challenge’ where young people/parents who identify their rainbow will receive a mystery goody box.
Some of the services we offer!
Immersive and hard-hitting drama and workshops for young people 14+ written and performed by our volunteer street cast who are also 14+ in order to provide other youth, school and community groups an interactive experience. Once young people have walked through the street experience they then complete a workshop to further explore the issues that they have seen.
Immersive drama and workshops for young people 11-13 exploring issues that are relevant to young people in a totally unique way. Walking around the ‘Street’ the Junior street is a less hard hitting and tailored towards 11-13 years old. However, the volunteer street cast still perform ‘issues’ that young people may have seen or previously been involved in before Regen:fx youth workers interact with the young people to explore the issues, actions and possible consequences.
