The London Marathon, which was due to take place on Sunday 26 April, is the world’s biggest single-day fundraising event. Its cancellation due to Covid-19 comes as a significant blow to many charitable organisations globally. The 2.6 Challenge is a way of showing your continued support and becoming a stay-at-home hero.
What you do is up to you. It could be running 2.6km, or doing 26 cartwheels in your back garden. Baking 26 cupcakes or staying silent for 6 minutes. The possibilities are endless – but for some STOP THE TRAFFIK approved suggestions, take a look at the list below:

COVID-19 is affecting everyone, but the most vulnerable in society will be those who suffer the most. Where there is uncertainty, loss of reliable income or loss of life, exploitation will follow – and traffickers know this. STOP THE TRAFFIK is working hard to scale up as an organisation in order to combat this increase in exploitation.
At STOP THE TRAFFIK, we are working globally to prevent human trafficking. We develop and implement intelligence-led campaigns that identify human trafficking trends and hotspots. In partnership with Facebook, local law enforcement, government, financial institutions and rescue organisations we run geo-targeted campaigns. So far, we’ve reached almost 7 million people. Help us reach the next 7 million and beyond.
