Australia’s largest mental health and fitness event, the Push-Up Challenge, is back again for another year running, with over 150,000 Australians participating in the challenge to raise awareness for men’s mental health.

From June 5 to 28, Australians will be pushing, squatting, or kicking for 3,249 reps – the number of lives lost to suicide in 2022.

Registration is free, and participants will be invited to download the Push-Up Challenge’s app, which will help participants track their reps, connect with their team if not participating solo, and provide fundraising tips.

Participants will also receive push-up targets that relate to a mental health fact each day, and are invited to read and share the facts with mates, coworkers, and family to improve mental health awareness, start conversations, and help lessen the stigma around mental illness.

Since its launch in 2017, the Push-Up Challenge has raised over $40 million for mental health programs and services, and continues to push and promote for better mental health among mates, families, and the community.

The company has partnered with headspace, Lifeline, and the Push for Better Foundation to ensure all Australians have access to mental health resources when needed.
