Daisy’s 2.6 Challenge

27 Apr 2020

Daisy, aged nine, completed The 2.6 Challenge yesterday, Sunday 26th April, to raise money for Friends of Rosie.

Her challenge included a 2.6k run, 26 skips, 26 star jumps, 26 burpees and 26 toilet roll keep ups. She raised £10 for each completed challenge, reaching a grand total of £50.

Daisy is niece to our charity namesake, Rosie. Daisy completed this challenge in memory of her Aunty Rosie to support childhood cancer research.

Well done Daisy! Brilliant effort and thank you so much for helping make sure children with cancer are not forgotten.
