Day 1 of 22 the Push Up Challenge!!!

22 push-ups a day for 22 days to raise awareness for combat veterans. A study involving over 20 states from 1999-2011 found that there were nearly 22 vets a day committing suicide. That number has been declining since 2007, the rate is still 48% higher than the national average. This is a small way to raise awareness for that issue.

I accepted this challenge to raise awareness of this very serious problem, and to honor the members of my family and others who have and continue to serve our country.

We need to take care of our military personnel. This needs to be a #1 priority.

My nominee for today is @Mary Shahan ??

The rules are simple:

* Once you are nominated your 22 days start the following day (I started same day)

* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push-ups. Try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted (from your knees) push-ups or that you have to stop and take a break that’s fine but try to get them all done in one video.

* Every day you must nominate a different person. Try to choose people you think will want to do this and/or have the ability to do it.

* This is a simple way to get the word out about a matter that more people need to be aware of. These brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms.
