Footballer Ben Gibson encouraged fellow footballers and supporters to attempt 26 keep ups and to donate to Teesside Hospice.
As with many charities, the coronavirus pandemic presented a challenge to Teesside Hospice.
Fundraising events had to be cancelled or taken online, which impacted on the Hospice's income.
Ambassador for the Hospice, Ben Gibson, made the most of his strong following by launching the 26 keep up challenge.
Fans and football stars took part, donated £5 and nominated friends to do the same.
Footballers and supporters were encouraged to nominate friends to take part.
The Hospice set a suggested donation amount to ensure the ask was as quick and simple as possible.
The target of 26 keep ups was set to fit with the 2.6 challenge, which was taking place around the time.
Text Giving is a perfect donation metric for a viral campaign. Supporters can screenshot their donation and share on social media, before nominating friends to do the same.
