Lifeline WA is pushing for better mental health in 2022

8 April 2022

Lifeline WA is thrilled to again be one of the beneficiaries of the Push-Up Challenge in 2022. 

The Push-Up Challenge runs from 1-24 June and is a great way to raise awareness of mental health, promote physical health, have fun and raising critical funds for Lifeline WA.  

As part of the event, participants are challenged to complete 3,139 push-ups over 24 days, putting the spotlight on the number of suicides in Australia in 2020.* 

“We are very grateful to The Push-Up Challenge for choosing to support Lifeline WA again this year. This initiative is iconic and loved across the state. Last year, participants helped raise awareness of mental health and Lifeline WA’s 13 11 14 crisis support number, and also raised over $175,000 We’re calling on WA to rally together again this year and push for better mental health with us,” says Susan Schofield, Lifeline WA Fundraising and Advocacy General Manager.  

“The Push-Up challenge is a great way to get motivated and you can work as a team to reach a target. It works, inside, outside – teams can even do push-ups together remotely! It’s a fun challenge that suits everyone, and any workplace, gym or school,” says Susan.

*Or aim for a % of that target. It’s OK to pick a different exercise, or push-up from walls, knees or benches.
