The 2.6 Challenge
As the London Marathon is not being run this year, charities are losing out on the money it would have received from all the fundraising the runners would have done.
So, its time for Hampton High to step up to the challenge and it will take a Marathon effort from every one of us – staff, students and families!
Over the weekend we would like you to take part in the following challenge:
For 26 minutes we want you to record the number of times you can do one or a combination of the following exercises: Sit ups, Press ups, Squats or Star Jumps.
When you have done send in your total number of reps to your tutor along with what exercise or activity you did by the end of Sunday via messaging on SMH. On Monday they will add together everyone’s score in the tutor group and we will work out which tutor group did the most!
P.S if sport isn’t your thing, why not paint 26 pictures, or read 26 pages of your favourite book. Any thing you want to do really! (Work out a way to give a number for the challenge!)
Some suggested ways you can do it…
- Get others in your tutor group or your friends to join you on a video chat and do it together
- Film yourself doing it to show your support!
- Get your family involved
But remember – this is a fundraising challenge! We would also like you to donate what you can to our following fundraising page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/hampton-high-s-2-6-challenge for The Trussell Trust which is a local charity helping our community! We suggest a donation of £2.60 to keep in the theme of the Marathon. Obviously, you need to get your parents permission first!
