Dawson community achieved Push-Up Challenge goal

March 1st, 2024

This winter the Dawson Community stepped up to the challenge of being active and supporting mental health initiatives! After 23 days, the Push-Up Challenge has concluded with the achievement of our modest community goal of 2,000 repetitions from all participants. In fact, we reached over 31 times that amount with 62,729 repetitions! We couldn’t have done it without two very dedicated teams: Sigma Nation (20,666 reps) and the Dawson Phys. Ed. Team (13,976 reps)! In addition, Dawson College raised $705 for the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Student Services and Human Resources worked together to offer participation prizes to students and staff. Prizes included gift certificates for IGA, Sports Experts, Lulu Lemon, Cage aux Sports and more! The winners are currently being contacted.

Many thanks to all the participants and organizers, especially Rhea Gurnagul who was present at the Push-Up Challenge Station almost every lunch time!

Our hope is that the Dawson community will continue to stay active and build a habit of working out regularly.
