For the month of June CCDBC participated in the Push-Up Challenge. This is the 3rd year the club has been involved. So, what is it? It challenges individuals, teams and communities to complete 3,318 push-ups over 25 days. The number of push-ups is the amount of people Australia lost to suicide in 2019.
Each day, we learnt about mental health as the push-up target related to a vital mental health statistic in Australia. For example, 135 push-ups because one recent analysis of scientific evidence suggests that three 45-minute exercise sessions per week (135 minutes total) is enough to provide anti-depressant benefits to mental health. The first week we had the challenge to post a caption to a daily photo (courtesy of Graham) and the second week we had to identify a mystery local photo. Of course, we also had our daily playlist, courtesy of Bruce.
Also, congratulations to Ree Dunn, Chris Evans, Kim Sanders and Lyn Stainlay who joined Grafton Rowing Club recently in its annual Rowathon in aid of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. Commencing on the beautiful Clarence River from Grafton Rowing Club, the dragon boat crew paddled 20 kilometres around both Susan & Elizabeth Islands.
