The 2.6 Challenge for CAFT

Join us from the 26th of April and take on the CAFT 2.6 challenge!
As many challenge events have been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, CAFT is joining hundreds of other charities to offer our supporters an opportunity to participate in the 2.6 challenge instead.

From walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles! How about holding indoor online workouts with 26 friends, or building a 26 part obstacle course with the kids? All you have to do to take part is complete an activity based around the magic numbers 2.6 or 26 this month.

Get crazy, creative & energetic , just be sure to comply with government guidelines! For more info on how to take part visit
And don’t forget to tag your photos.

And as always, your support is so appreciated especially in different days like these. So if you can’t take part in a challenge but would like to make a donation to us any way, you can do so here. Thank you.
