Emma D'arcey runs the London Marathon for shuktara

Trustees take on the 2.6 Challenge for shuktara

“I am planning on doing 26 skips, then a break of 2.6 minutes to recover (I think a recovery time of 26 seconds is a tad optimistic), then another 26 skips, doing a total of 26 sets of 26 skips.”

Sue Tungay

“In 2016 I ran for shuktara in the London Marathon. The support from David, shuktara supporters, friends and family and all the people lining the streets was tremendous. I am feeling for all the runners who have worked so hard on both training and fundraising, unable to take part in this 40th anniversary year.

On the 26th of April I will complete 26 circuits of the Wells Cathedral green with my 9 month old Fredy in her pushchair. My aim is to help raise awareness for this very special charity. “

“I am planning on running around the main lawn on my estate 26 times, again with a break of 2.6 minutes in between each lap.”

Mike Tungay

“I’m going to walk up the stairs to my flat – 26 steps, 26 times for Shuktara.

On Sunday 26 April, the day when the London marathon should have happened I’m taking part in the 2.6 Challenge.

Set up to encourage fundraising for charities hard hit by coronavirus, the 2.6 Challenge is inspiring people throughout the UK to raise money at or around their home for their favourite charity. “
