The Push-Up Challenge

We're doing The Push-Up Challenge 2021! It's all in support of mental health awareness. This adds up to a target of 3318 push-ups in 25 days to reflect the 3318 people who died by suicide in 2019. 'The Next Practice Pushers' have been preparing and are ready...!

All donations made to our team page or to individual members will go to the Push for Better Foundation to support the education of mental health issues and to provide critical mental health services. Mental health is one of our four pillars of wellbeing and we believe that keeping it as healthy as possible is central to living and ageing well. As such, Next Practice Deakin will match the total dollar amount of donations we receive, up to $500, to the Push for Better Foundation.

We'll be tracking our push-up progress and will keep you updated along the way! We look forward to keeping fit this month and more importantly, putting a spotlight on the importance of mental health, suicide prevention and general wellbeing.
