About Our Challenge

In June, our Community is taking part in The Push-Up Challenge. We are going to help shine the spotlight on the number of lives lost to suicide in 2020 and raise awareness of mental health. You can create a team in this Community, join a team or support someone who is taking part. Help us push for better mental health.

Supporting Lifeline Brisbane QLD

Join the Lifeline Brisbane team in The Push-Up Challenge to push for better mental health this June! Funds raised will support our team of 120 Crisis Supporters to respond to those at risk of suicide.
