Students have been split into teams based on their winter co-curricular sport while teaching and professional staff have also formed their own teams. Over the three weeks, the goal is to complete 3,046 push-ups as a team. Currently, the CGGS Professional Staff team is leading with 1,736 push-ups. The Soccer girls and the combined Hockey and Touch Football team are tied in second place having both accrued 1,616 push-ups at the time of writing.
The Push-Up Challenge’s aim is to raise awareness for mental health by encouraging participants to engage in physical activity while connecting with their community. The initiative has already raised over $3 million for Headspace with over 125,000 people participating across the nation.
