1st - 25th June 2021
Join your mates and thousands of others in each completing:
3,318 push-ups over 25 days
Keep track of how you and your friends are going with our App.
Complete your push-ups any time and any place.
Each day, you will learn about mental health as the target number of push-ups relates to a different mental health statistic in Australia.
For example, 135 push-ups because one recent analysis of scientific evidence suggests that three 45-minute exercise sessions per week (135 minutes total) is enough to provide anti-depressant benefits to mental health.
Over the course of 25-days you'll be challenged to complete 3,318 push-ups in total, representing the number of lives lost in Australia to suicide in 2019.
If 3,318 push-ups seems a little high, you can aim for 25%, 50% or 75% of the target.
Together, we can make a real difference - sign up today and join the push for better mental health!
Register your interest now and we'll keep you posted in the build up to 2021 event
Having a bunch of friends involved helps with the motivation (and banter)
Get into it. Through our App 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 3,318 push-ups is too much? Perhaps aim for 25%, 50% or 75% of the target.
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 mental health 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're hoping others can join us for this year's event and bring more people together in having fun and staying well.
