Today is the first day of the Push up Challenge in support of PUSH FOR BETTER Foundation. So why this challenge? One in five Australians will experience mental ill-health this year and only 46% of people seek help. It’s a complex challenge – for ourselves, our loved ones and, most of all, for the nine Australians who die by suicide every day. Raising awareness for mental health is important because it helps to reduce stigma surrounding mental health issues. It also encourages individuals to seek help and support and promotes better understanding of mental health conditions and their impact on individuals and society.

By taking part in this challenge, you will not only be raising awareness for mental health but the challenge itself can have both physical and mental health benefits. Physically, it can improve muscle strength and endurance. Mentally, it can increase self-confidence and promote a sense of accomplishment. Additionally, regular exercise has been shown to improve mood and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.

The goal of this challenge is to complete 3,144 push-ups from 1 to 23 June. At Tattersalls we will do this in teams of 3. That will be 45 push ups a day for everyone to reach that goal. Sign up today so we can smash this challenge together for a great cause!
