Welcome to rebel Be Active.
Uniting Australians to take action against the growing number of lives lost to suicide.
Motivated to do something? rebel Be Active delivers a great range of activities to join through community participation, allowing you to experience the transformative power of sport in your own time and in your own way.
Sport means something different to us all. You might want to run, swim, cycle or hike.
It can be a big race or your own personal challenge. It doesn’t matter how you decide to Be Active. What really counts is keeping the phones running. Your efforts will help ensure that the next caller is heard.
Be active, be challenged, be brave
There’s strength within, a life you can save
Unlock your hero with every stride you make
Heart full, a stranger helped with the call we could take
We can’t wait to see what you do next
The Push Up Challenge

All funds raised will go towards mental health and crisis support services, helping to break stigmas and provide hope to those struggling with their mental health, so no one is going through their darkest moments alone.
