In the month of November Cloncurry resident Tristin Condon is launching into the 10,000 push-ups challenge. This equates to a huge 334 push-ups every day for 30 days.
The challenge is part of a fundraising initiative from Variety the Children's Charity which reinforces in Mr Condron the need to be positive and the need to help children who have cerebral palsy.
Mr Condon, who also is affected by cerebral palsy, said he wanted to share the message that #VarietyKidsCan and the importance of chasing your dreams, no matter what your ability.
“I am an individual who was told that I would never walk, talk or live into my teen years,” Mr Condon said.
“I didn't start walking or talking until I was four years old but I have completed a law degree and double business degree and this is because my parents shared the mentality of empowering, and attaining full potential regardless of a person’s ability or background.”
Mr Condon said they never imposed limitations on him.
“It's very important for me to chase my dreams and motivate others to do the same,” he said.
“And it’s important for people to understand not to just have one dream, but to have multiple dreams, and go after the things you want to experience.
Show your support by joining Mr Condon in the push-up challenge or start your own challenge by creating a Team Variety fundraising page.
Alternatively, you can make a donation.
“With your generosity, I can reach my fundraising goal and together we can help create opportunities for young people and empower them to chase their dreams,” he said.
