The coronavirus crisis has had a catastrophic effect on the charity sector as a whole, with thousands of events up and down the country being cancelled or postponed, resulting in billions of lost fundraising income. The organisers of the UK’s biggest mass participation events have set up the 2.6 Challenge to give you the opportunity to help charities like us through this crisis. 

At Pancreatic Cancer UKwe need our supporters by our side now more than ever so that our nurses can give people affected by pancreatic cancer the practical information and emotional support they need, and to help ease the burden for our colleagues in the NHS.  

How do I get involved?  

  • Decide on your 2.6 Challenge – get creative

There are no rules –but we’d ask you to please follow government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time. 

  • Set up a fundraising page  
  • Personalise your fundraising page 
  • Share your page with friends and family 
  • Look out for an email from us!

The funds you raise will help us make sure our nurses can be there for people affected by pancreatic cancer, when they are needed most.
