8th - 28th July
Join your mates and thousands of others in each completing:
3,128 push-ups over 21 days
Keep track of how you and your friends are going with our sweet tracker. Along the way we’ll give you some mental health tips and you’ll also get a chance to fund raise for mental health.
Complete your push-ups any time and any place, as long as you meet the daily target.
Each day, the target number of push-ups to complete will reflect a different statistic to do with mental health in Australia.
For example, 45 push-ups to recognise the percentage of Australians who will experience a mental health condition over their lifetime.
Over the course of 21-days you'll be challenged to complete 3,128 push-ups in total, representing the number of lives lost in Australia due to mental health issues in 2017. Together, we can make a real difference - sign up today and join the push for better mental health!
Funds raised will go to headspace
Register now to get things all set up (event start date 8th July)
Having a bunch of friends involved helps with the motivation (and banter)
Get into it. Through our Sweet Online Tracker we'll help you keep track of your progress. Best to start early each day and chip away at it.
Push-ups can be done just about anywhere: at home, at the park, whilst waiting for a bus.
Spread your push-ups out over the day. Some just after you wake up, another bunch just before lunch. You'll smash out the daily target in no time.
Worried that 3,128 push-ups is too much? You can take part in a team where combined you work towards that goal.
What are you waiting for?
The Push-Up Challenge not only has your crew exercising and learning about mental health but it also encourages a community environment at work.
Many workplaces have multiple teams which allows for some friendly rivalry.
Want your workplace to be involved?
There is a strong correlation between exercise and mental health which drives our motto of 'push for better together' with The Push-Up Challenge.
Not only will you be getting a work-out but you’ll be learning about mental wellness with our daily practical tips.
You also have the option of fundraising for headspace as part of the event.
Know of someone who is pushing? Be sure to show the love by sponsoring them.
The Push-Up Challenge was started by a bunch of mates who are passionate about bringing people together.
We have seen The Push-Up Challenge develop relationships and strengthen groups within organisations, sporting teams and other community groups.
We are quite proud of our efforts to date which have raised over $200K.
We're hoping others can join us for this year's event and bring more people together in having fun and staying well.
