Below is the history of this Challenge in Trisha's own words ...
Thanks so much and particularly to Digicel for support and inspiration, if we can all recall, Barry our CEO did not take this challenge and instead started putting water tanks in school which so happen to have been our planned extraordinary moments initiative for month of August/September.
From that he suggested what needs to be done is a localized initiative, having said that I got very excited and thought of a challenge that will help our beautiful country Jamaica hence the birth of #wtspushupchallenge.

Yes I know it is like the ALS hence I said let's try it as ALS to date has raised over 100 million USD.
Water is life and this basic need is keeping a lot of our children out of schools...watch the news and we see, no water no school.
You can do push ups as a healthy lifestyle however I wouldn't ask you to post it but if you want to please and encourage more or just asking for support.
We also know for success you need star power and I train at Cutbert Fitness studio and she partnered with me so we are in this together, her star power started the video and here we are today.
Juliet is holder of a silver medal holder and is in the history book.
Key to note also is that this is not about any individual but more so to get person owing this issue and helping to fix.
Thanks as always,
