Push Up for CrossReach Fundraiser
We all want everyone to come out of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) period stronger with a bigger sense of community spirit!
Scotland, Britain and the world is preparing to go into lock-down as we battle against the spread of Covid-19, millions of people are facing up to the reality of isolation, dreading the thought of not seeing loved ones, family, colleagues and friends on a daily basis, over what will hopefully be a short period of time. However, the reality is that social isolation and loneliness is a daily reality for many groups of vulnerable people of all ages living throughout Scotland, impacting on their mental health and well-being.
These people need our support now more than ever. They might be a child socially isolated due to parental drug or alcohol use. Or an adult socially isolated because of a mental health issues like depression, stress or anxiety. Or an older adult living with dementia in a care home, who, because of Covid-19, can no longer see their loved ones and friends, but may not understand why. We need to be there for them.
This is why we are asking you to take part in the Push up for CrossReach fundraiser #YouAreNotAlone
What is Push Up for CrossReach?
It is a push up challenge that increases daily, starting at any number of push ups on day one that you are comfortable with and increasing this by one each day Monday Thursday, by two on a Friday then having the weekend off before continuing on the Monday for a total of four weeks. Sample below

To make this challenge as accessible to everyone as possible, please feel free to substitute a push up with something that suits your physical ability, but is still a "push" for you.
