Join the APP Team for an Active Challenge!

Challenge yourself and raise money to help Action on Postpartum Psychosis. Everyone is welcome and support and help is available at app@app-network.org

Here are APP’s Active Challenges to get involved in:
On Sunday 26 April, take part in the 2.6 Challenge.
Throughout the month of May, walk, cycle or run 25k, 50k, 100k or 200k and join the Virtual Runner May Challenge.
Or, dream up your own active challenge and fundraise in aid of APP. We’re here to support you.

Take part in the 2.6 Challenge

Do the #TwoPointSixChallenge on Sunday 26 April, in aid of APP!

The need for our work at Action on Postpartum Psychosis is greater than ever. We want to continue what we are doing to support women and families and we would like to do more. Like many smaller charities, we need funding. If you are able to, please help to support our work and join us in taking the 2.6 Challenge.

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 and help save the UK's charities. 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 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends.

Here are 5 steps to getting involved:

Join the Virtual Runner May Challenge

We are thrilled that APP is the chosen charity for Virtual Runner's monthly challenge during May 2020. Challenge yourself to complete 25k, 50k, 100k or 200k distance throughout the month of May 2020.

Your challenge will be made up from multiple sessions to achieve your chosen distance but you can do it at your pace. You can choose to run, walk or cycle the distance you have signed up for between 1st – 31st May 2020 and you can mix and match any discipline to achieve your goal. Once completed, you just submit your results online and upload proof that you have completed the distance or challenge using app screenshots and they'll send you a medal!

Here are 5 steps to starting your challenge to walk, cycle or run 25k, 50k, 100k or 200k for Action on Postpartum Psychosis:
