A TEAM of fit and somewhat ambitious men from Peninsula Kung Fu are limbering up for the 2023 Push Up Challenge.
The men are aiming to complete 3144 push-ups each over 23 days in June to raise money for suicide prevention and awareness of men’s mental health.
The targeted number of push-ups is how many Australian lives were lost to suicide in 2021 – and helps shine a light on the prevalence of male suicide across the country.
Peninsula Kung Fu’s Sarah Hanna said participants will get together each Friday during the challenge for a few sets of push-ups.
“We welcome any guys doing the challenge to join us there, or any gentlemen that want to find out more about kung fu and its benefits for mental and physical health to come and meet the awesome men training,” she said.
For the second year running, Movember has partnered with the Push-Up Challenge.
Peninsula Kung Fu is at 1/2A Carbine Way, Mornington, phone 5975 3252.
