Sunday 26 April 2020 was to have been the date of the London Marathon with runners raising £millions for UK charities.
The Nystagmus Network’s runner, Adam, is still training to run in the postponed race in October.
Meanwhile, the organisers have launched The Two Point Six Challenge to help save the UK’s charities by giving us an opportunity to raise some funding to keep us going. It’s also completely safe and a bit of diversion during lockdown.
The Nystagmus Network’s Sue is amongst those taking up the challenge.
The idea is that you set yourself a target based around the numbers 2, 6, 2.6 or 26.
Sue says: “I can’t run a marathon, but I can knit!
Nystagmus Network mascots usually wear woolly hats and scarves, but for my 2.6 challenge I’m going to knit 26 mascots wearing running kit by 26 May. Please sponsor me if you can and wish me luck!”
