Otto's inspiring 2.6 Challenge

Last September doctors found a tumour lodged in the back of Otto’s brain, which later was diagnosed as grade 4 cancer.

He is currently in isolation due to the heightened risk of infection whilst he receives chemotherapy, but even that isn't stopping this remarkable young man from taking on his own 2.6 Challenge to raise funds for our charity.

What an incredible young man!

Watch Otto's mum Amy, assisted by his sister Tilly, explain more below.

Home heroes, not superheroes

If you're not able to leave your house or flat, not a problem! We’re not looking for superheroes - we’re looking for Home Heroes. 

There are no rules (apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time). Whatever you can do, you can be part of it – the main thing is getting active, having fun and donating whatever you can to help fund Brain Tumour Research!

Pick any challenge involving the numbers 2.6 or 26, from walking 2.6 miles or doing 26 push-ups to juggling an orange for 26 minutes, the ways to raise are almost limitless.

Can't participate in a challenge? No problem! You can donate directly to Brain Tumour Research via the link below too!
