Push-Up Challenge to Raise Money This Weekend for JFCS of the Suncoast’s Mental Health Programs

The Giving Coast

JFCS of the Suncoast is hosting its first Push for Mental Health on Saturday, Sept. 24. The event, which is a fundraiser, health fair and push-up challenge, will be held at the Sarasota Classic Car Museum from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sponsors include the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, Florida Blue, and several local health and fitness organizations. The focus of the event is fun and fitness while raising money and awareness for mental health. During the event, participants will do push-ups at their own pace, competing not against others, but against their own fitness goals. Some may set a pace of 4 push-ups per minute, while others may do 10 every 5 minutes. All ages and skill levels are welcome; participants can do traditional push-ups, wall push-ups, knee push-ups or other modified forms. JFCS offers a range of programs to help youth, teens, adults and seniors cope with long and short-term mental health challenges. Many of these services are offered without any reimbursement, so philanthropy and community support ensure that JFCS can continue to offer assistance to all who are in need. Push for Mental Health will take place from 9:00 am - 12:30 pm. The push-up challenge will take place from 10 a.m. – noon at the Sarasota Classic Car Museum, 5500 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
