The Push Up Challenge
Join us we push for better mental health
Get fit, have fun and learn about mental health by taking part in The Push-Up Challenge 2021.
This June, join our community with your team and challenge yourself to complete 3,318 push-ups over 25 days to acknowledge the number of lives lost to suicide in 2019.
Each team member can aim for 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of the push-up target.
Push-ups can be done just about anywhere, and you can spread your push-ups out over the day. Exercise alternatives such as sit-ups, squats or tailored exercises are also very welcome. Through the event app you can bank your push-ups and see how your team is going.
The daily push-up target changes each day to reflect a vital mental health statistic, so along the way you’ll learn about mental health.
Our team is supporting headspace National Youth Mental Health, this Foundation provides mental health services to young people 12 – 25 online, by phone and through headspace centres in metro and regional areas across Australia.
Fundraising is an optional part of the event but a great opportunity to support critical mental health services across Australia.
Join as we push for better mental health.
