“The Push-Up Challenge is raising money to support headspace, National Youth Mental Health Organisation.
An organisation working to strengthen the mental health and wellbeing of young Australians.
The Push-Up Challenge started in 2018 and aims to raise awareness of mental health in Australia. This year, The Push-Up Challenge highlights the devastating number of Australian lives lost to suicide in 2017.
3,128 push-ups for 3,128 lives lost to suicide”
This challenge is supposed to run from the 8th July through to the 28th July – and for the majority of my team “Ezyfit” – this will be the case. In an effort to put a little bit of a different spin on it, I decided to do every single push-up in one (1) day. After doing some quick math, and seeing it would take a LEAST 2 hours if I could maintain 24 odd push-ups every single minute, with no breaks….we committed!
AND MADE IT!
We are super pleased to say that all 3128 push-ups were achieved in 3 hrs and 1 min, and every single one of them was on toes. And it hurts today. Lol. There definitely some stiffness starting to kick in.
