Calling all home heroes!

We’re calling on you to take on The 2.6 Challenge so together we can continue supporting autistic people and their families. Many fundraising events in the UK have been postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and we’ve been left struggling to maintain our crucial services with reduced funding.

Join the nation in this challenge today – find out how to take part below or read some of our supporter’s stories of the challenges they’ve already done for ideas and inspiration! 

What do I need to do?

  1. Read our supporter stories or look up the #twopointsixchallenge hashtag on social media for ideas.
  2. Head to this page to choose to either donate £26 yourself (or whatever you can afford) to the National Autistic Society or set up a fundraising page and ask friends and family to help you reach the £26 target.
  3. Follow our Team Autism Facebook page and share what you plan to do and see what others are getting up to!
  4. Complete your challenge (whilst following government guidelines on exercise and social distancing)
  5. Share a picture or video on social media when you’ve done your 2.6, tag three friends or family members and challenge them to have a go and use the hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge. Tag us too on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram – we’d love to share what you come up with!

Take on the challenge
