Take on the 2.6 Challenge for DSWF

DSWF are relaunching the 2.6 Challenge from Saturday 26 September, leading up to the Virtual London Marathon on Sunday 4 October.

Covid-19 is affecting all walks of life and the work of DSWF is no exception, with events and activities being cancelled or limited due to the current crisis. Which is why we’re taking part in The 2.6 Challenge – a nationwide initiative set up by Save the UK Charities to engage people like you around the world in a show of strength and support for the causes dear to them. And we’d love for you to join our 2.6 Challenge team!

Our wildlife needs us now, more than ever before and with your help, we can continue to stand together and save endangered species from the brink of extinction. 

Get involved in the #TwoPointSixChallenge

The #TwoPointSixChallenge is a fun and easy way to support DSWF and our precious wildlife from your own home. The idea is to…

  • Choose your own #TwoPointSixChallenge – a challenge that suits your skills and ability, involving the numbers 2.6 or 26*
  • Create your own fundraising page on JustGiving and ask your friends and family to support your #TwoPointSixChallenge
  • Donate £26 (or any amount you wish) to DSWF through our JustGiving page
  • Share your challenge on social media, tagging us @dswfwildlife #TwoPointSixChallenge and nominating others to take part!
