The 2.6 Challenge Campaign explained

You set your own rules, whilst following Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time. The challenge isn’t just about physical activity, we’ve been creative with the numbers 2 and 6 – with something to suit everyone. The main thing is to have fun, while you raising what you can to join us in the fight against diseases of the gut, liver and pancreas.

If you’d like to help Guts UK continue our crucial work but don’t want to commit to a challenge, you can still support our work by simply donating £26.

You are part of our life-saving research, life-changing patient information and eye-opening awareness. Thank you.

I want to lead the way in the fight against digestive diseases by donating to Guts UK today
