Push Up Challenge For Mental Health
2,000 push-ups for the 20% of Canadians who will experience a mental illness each year.
You can take on the challenge on your own or create a team. Teams help build motivation and healthy competition. For groups of more than 10 people, we suggest you create a community (a collection of teams). These work well for workplaces, gyms, schools and clubs, or big groups of friends.
From February 1 to 23, you'll challenge yourself to complete 2,000 push-ups - representing the 20% of Canadians who will experience a mental illness each year.
Each day of the challenge, you will receive a daily target with a corresponding mental health fact, so you can learn while you push for better mental health. You can substitute push-ups with alternative exercises, or aim for a smaller portion of the target if the full target is too challenging.
Get involved in The Push-Up Challenge and not only will you have a bit of fun, but you can help Canadians get the mental health support they urgently need.
It's free to sign up and with every push you can help save lives.
