The Giving Coast


JFCS of the Suncoast is hosting its inaugural Push for Mental Health on Saturday, September 24th. 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 mental health awareness. During the event, participants do push-ups at their own pace and compete not against others, but against their own fitness goals. Some can set a pace of 4 push-ups per minute, while others can 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 problems. Many of these services are provided without reimbursement, so philanthropy and community support ensure JFCS can continue to serve those in need. Push for Mental Health takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The Push Up Challenge will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Sarasota Classic Car Museum, 5500 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
