Henley Manor Care Home to take part in the 2.6 challenge
The charity promotes a wider understanding of all aspects of brain injury and supports people with an acquired brain injury, their families and carers in the Thames Valley area.
The 2.6 challenge is where a group of people each run 2.6 miles to make up 26 miles to raise money that would have otherwise been raised during the Virgin Money London Marathon, in an effort to help save UK charities.
Customer Relationship Manager at Henley Manor Care Home, Charlotte Bennett said: “I had recently spotted the 2.6 challenge online and thought it was a brilliant opportunity for the team at Henley Manor to do something together and support the local community.
“So many charities are having a tough time at the moment due to the cancellation of fundraising events so the 2.6 challenge is a great way of recovering some of those lost funds.
“We decided to support Headway Thames Valley who are a truly amazing charity that support brain injury survivors, their families and carers.”
The care home is hoping to raise £300 for the charity from the event taking place on the 5th May. If you would like to support the home by making a donation, please click here.
