#22PushUpChallenge Is The Next Ice Bucket Challenge, Raises Awareness For US Veterans

After the phenomenal success of the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money and awareness of ALS, a new challenge has begun: #22PushUpChallenge.

The #22PushUpChallenge is to raise awareness for the 22 veterans who commit suicide everyday in the United States.

Chris Pratt, Jon Krasinski, The Rock, Chris Evans, J.J. Watt, and Kevin Hart have all participated in the challenge so far, as they also challenge others to do the same and continue raising awareness.

“This is to raise awareness for veteran suicide prevention. All the men and women who have served this country and are struggling with  PTSD, specifically the 22 veterans who commit suicide a day,” Evans said in his video. “I didn’t know this was happening at that rate. That’s why this challenges are good. They raise awareness and shine a light on issues that need to be addressed.”
