1,844 Legends Push for Mental Health with the Push-Up Challenge!


Over the past 23 days, an astounding 1,844 legends flexed their muscles and hearts to complete 2,000 push-ups in support of CMHA Calgary. Together, we’ve raised a staggering $106,599 to support us at CMHA Calgary in providing wellness and recovery-oriented supports and services to the community.

The Push-Up Challenge: It’s More Than Push-Ups

In a nation where approximately 4,500 lives are tragically lost to suicide each year, this challenge became more than a physical feat; it became a powerful statement of solidarity and a push for better mental health outcomes in Canada.

So, to each and every one of our Push-Up Challenge legends, supporters, and donors – thank you. Thank you for pushing your limits, supporting each other, and championing the cause of mental health with unwavering dedication.

The Push-Up Challenge may be over, but our commitment to mental health awareness and support remains as strong as ever. Please consider supporting CMHA Calgary year-round by volunteering, hosting a fundraiser or becoming a monthly donor.

Let’s keep pushing forward, one push-up at a time!
