We love supporting a good cause here at 97.1 AMP Radio.
The #22PushupChallenge is the latest one to go viral. Chris Evans, John Krasinki, Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are just some of the stars who have taken part.
The concept is pretty simple — Record yourself completing 22 push-ups, explain why are you pushing or who are you are pushing for, and post it online.
The organization’s goal is to reach 22 million push-ups worldwide “to honor those who serve and to raise awareness for veteran suicide prevention through education and empowerment.”
The number 22 is significant because that’s approximately how many veterans die by suicide each day, according to a 2012 report from the Department of Veteran Affairs.
Our very own Booker completed the #22PushupChallenge earlier this morning. Watch the entire video above!
