James Morley is ready to pump out 3,128 push-ups over 21 days to raise money for mental health.

The Push-Up Challenge was created to support Headspace, a National Youth Mental Health Organisation and began in the 2018 to raise the awareness of mental health after suicide was the leading cause of death for people between the ages 18 to 44 in 2017.

Participants are challenged to complete 3,128 push ups as that was the number of lives lost to suicide in 2017.

The challenge is spaced out to include rest days and high to low numbers of push ups, making some days harder than others.

“It’s not a constant 165 as I calculated it, it’s more spiked up and down,” Mr Morley said.

“The whole point of a challenge is to be tested.”

The Push-Up Challenge begins on July 8. Donate via bit.ly/2XopNIU
