The Push-Up Challenge 2021
‘It’s a brilliant initiative and I’m so glad you came up with it. There is a lot of helplessness around suicide….. The Push-Up Challenge gives grieving families and loved ones the chance to do something rather than think about what we could have done or should have done.’ Motiata Hooper
Funds raised for The Push For Better Foundation helped deliver The Push-Up Challenge event, which in 2021 delivered significant benefit to over 174,000 participants across Australia—with participants reporting improvements in their mental and physical wellbeing and better mental health literacy.
Research shows that 75 per cent of mental health disorders develop before the age of 25. In 2019 and 2020 The Push-Up Challenge supported headspace, National Youth Mental Health Foundation to develop their Family and Friends approach, supporting young people all across Australia.
