The Push Up Challenge is MS Ireland’s most accessible challenge yet with MS Ireland’s Physio team putting together five different variations of push ups for all levels of ability, strength and fitness. So there is a push for everyone no matter the levels of fitness and flexibility.
There are many great benefits to health and fitness through doing push ups on a regular basis. Push ups improve muscle strength by working on the many muscle groups in the arms and they are great for activating weak muscles which can potentially improve with bone strength.
MS Ireland is calling on people across Clare to challenge themselves and get active to raise vital funds for MS Ireland in March. MS Ireland is asking for your support to help to continue to provide information, vital services and support to the MS community and provide vital services including Regional Community Worker programmes for one-to-one support; physiotherapy; symptom management courses; newly diagnosed sessions and the MS Information Line. MS Ireland also provide the only national respite and therapy centre for people with MS in Ireland.
Commenting on the challenge, Melanie Cunningham, Senior Fundraiser with MS Ireland said: “At MS Ireland we are working to support every person with MS in Ireland. By taking part in this challenge, you will make a real impact on the lives of people with MS from all over Ireland. The vital funds you raise will be put to work where they are needed most to enhance our Multiple Sclerosis services. Every project our fundraisers support to help MS Ireland is only possible through the generosity of our supporters. Thank you to everyone who continues to fundraise, volunteer, and donate to support MS Ireland”.
When people register, they will receive a Push Up Challenge pack to help track their progress over the course of March. Participants will be supported by a dedicated MS Ireland team and will have the opportunity to join a special Push Up Challenge Facebook group connecting people across Ireland who have joined the challenge.
