Congratulations and a big thank you to all the Douglas Partners staff, family and friends who participated in the Headspace Push Up Challenge 2019.
Each athlete was set the challenge of doing a total of 3128 push ups over 21 days. The DP Push-Up Team completed a combined total of an amazing 101,112 push ups and together we raised $4096 with our company donating a further $1011 to help provide mental health support services for young Australians.
While not all athletes made it to the end, it was a massive effort and exercise in mental toughness just to give it a go.
More than 75 per cent of mental health issues develop before a person turns 25. With a focus on early intervention, young people can be helped and supported to get back on track and strengthen their ability to manage their mental health in the future.
Keep pushing for better mental health and services!
