Eleanor's 2.6 challenge completed!

Eleanor completes her 26 ascents of Snaefell in just under 15 hours

The Children's Centre has recently seen a number of  '2.6 challenges', launched to replace the Virgin Money London Marathon as a way of fundraising for charities.


Eleanor Miklos took part in her own 2.6 challenge on Monday 25th May by running up and down Snaefell, from the Bungalow, 26 times for The Children's Centre.


Eleanor, an English teacher from Laxey and an employee from Curragh's Wildlife Park took on this challenge with her family, including her husband and 2 children, as well as friends, socially distancing of course.


Eleanor said before tha start  "We all have our mountains, especially the children and families supported by The Children's Centre. At this time, more than ever, it's important to show our love for the local charities that strengthen our community."

Well as you may have seen on social media and on local radio, Eleanor smashed this challenge and completed the final leg, in darkness with her mum, husband Tibor and two sons.

So far Eleanor has raised almost £2,000 when she had an original target of £260!!
