Dear Goalball Family,
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income through fundraising events. The Virgin Money London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26 April, is the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event, which raised more than £66.4 million for thousands of charities in 2019.
We are one of many charities who have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need us.
From Sunday 26 April, the day when the Virgin Money London Marathon would have taken place, join the rest of the UK for The 2.6 Challenge. The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends.
We will be sharing some ideas how you may join in with us at Goalball UK next week so please keep an eye on our social media platforms.
Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. After all, we’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes.

We hope you can help and have some fun doing so!
Stay safe #GoalballFamily and look after yourselves and your families,
