Lifeline Sydney & Sutherland
Funds raised through The Push-Up Challenge 2021 helped Lifeline Sydney & Sutherland extend on our vision to extend our impact to help seekers in a quality and impactful way through the continuation of our employed Crisis Supporter program. Funds raised enabled us to hire an additional clinical supervisor to support our team in the work they do to support our callers.
One of our Push-Up team members, dedicated his fundraising to his brother, who was lost to suicide in January 2021. He raised over $5,000 honouring his memory.
“I am in awe and absolutely appreciative and grateful for the work that you all choose to do to improve the lives of many Australians, so that they don't experience the loss and grief and heartache like my family and like your dear friend's family are experiencing. Thank you all for your important work - across all domains that your work expands to.”
Many members of our team involved local gyms and their members for greater impact. Damian Wightman from InnerFit Leichhardt not only helped raise funds for our centre, but also produced some daily technique videos to keep us all motivated.
