On February 1, 2024, D2Lers rolled up their sleeves, stretched out their arms, flexed some muscles and came together to support mental health across Canada. The push-up challenge was introduced by the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) to bring awareness and encourage better mental health.

The challenge consists of completing 2,000 push-ups within 23 days in February to help raise awareness for mental illness in Canada. Now, you might be thinking, 2,000 push-ups in 23 days? Impossible. But fear not, for each day brought us a manageable target of push-ups ranging from 49 to 160. Let’s not forget those well-deserved rest days in between, because even superheroes need a break. There were also alternative exercises and smaller targets to help you hit your goals. A BIG THANK YOU to CMHA for those. CMHA also made it super easy by using their Push for Better App. With the user-friendly app logging our progress, checking daily targets and cheering on fellow D2Lers was a breeze.

Together D2Lers accomplished an impressive total of 30,715 push-ups. Their dedication and excitement truly made a difference in supporting mental health initiatives across Canada. Overall, Canadians banded together and accomplished 44 million push ups, raising an incredible $2.4 million to support the CMHA.

But beyond the numbers, we saw the passion, commitment and hard work in promoting mental wellness. To every D2Ler who participated, I extend a heartfelt thank you. Your dedication has not only made a difference in the lives of others but has also ignited a spark of pride within yourselves.

As the challenge has ended, let’s remember that our wellness journeys are ongoing. So, let’s continue to support each other, one push-up at a time. Together, we can make a world of difference.
