We’ve come to the end of our second week of The Push-Up Challenge where members of our Frankston Basketball community have been completing push-ups and other physical activity whilst raising funds for our local headspace centre in Frankston.

Nationally The Push-Up Challenge has hit some huge milestones with over $5M raised for mental health and over 170,000 Australians taking part in the challenge.

Locally, our Frankston Basketball community is showing what we are made of having raised over $9,000 for headspace Frankston by the 170 participants taking part in the challenge.

The challenge will culminate in the hosting of the Basketball Victoria Mental Health Round on the weekend of the 25th, 26th and 27th of June where Frankston Basketball will host Friday night VJBL, an NBL1 double header and a Big V double header.

Whilst the challenge has provided some engagement for our community and some outstanding results, our local headspace Frankston team are still working hard behind the scenes to provide support for our community in any way that they can.

Please see below information regarding a webinar that the team are running that could be beneficial to our parents, carers and coaches:

The effects of COVID and lockdown are ongoing and sometimes it can be hard to know how to support the people in our lives

That’s why we love offering opportunities that help inform the community, like our upcoming Parent and Carer Webinar, happening on Wednesday June 16th at 7pm

Run in collaboration with headspace, these workshops look at youth mental health, local and national resources and a chance to chat with our centre staff

We look forward to seeing what our community can achieve over the next 2 weeks of this challenge and to hosting Mental Health Round later this month.
