Next steps

1. Register your sports club and we’ll email you all the info you need. 
2. Ensure your sports club crew download the Push for Better app.
3. Start pushing on February 1, 2024!

The Challenge

You and your sports club will be challenged to complete 2,000 push-ups over 23 days in February as we put a spotlight on the 20% of Canadians who experience mental illness each year.

We know - that's a lot of push-ups. But don't sweat, alternative exercises are welcome (think sit-ups, squats or jumping jacks), plus you can aim for a portion of the push-up target instead.
