Cannington Mine’s planning department team pride themselves on conjuring up unusual charity challenges, with Frikkie Sadie and Adam Self raising the bar this year.

Mr Sadie and Mr Self each completed more than 600 burpees - a push-up exercise transitioning into a standing position – within 60 minutes in a recent fundraising event.

“The boys took on a burpee challenge raising money for each completed burpee or the number reached during the hour-long event,” specialist communities Joanne Kent said.

Each year Cannington staff back a raft of activities to benefit a nominated charity and this year suicide prevention organisation, Beyond Blue, is the beneficiary.

Ms Kent said $30,000 had been raised within the first six months of this year’s drive.An important element of this year’s campaign is planned for September, when an “Are You Okay Day” will raise awareness of suicide prevention methods.
