Over the course of the past few weeks, have you noticed your friends all across Central New York doing 22 pushups on Facebook? It's all part of the #22KillChallenge, here's the details on what it is. 

To honor those who serve our country, and to raise awareness for veteran suicide prevention through education and empowerment, New Yorkers are doing 22 Pushups. This challenge isn't just for New Yorker's, it's for anyone nationwide, even worldwide. The challenge was started by #22Kill.

#22KILL is a global movement created by veterans with a mission to:

- Honor those who serve(d)
- Raise awareness to veteran suicide and mental health issues such as PTS and TBI
- Educate the public about current veteran-related topics and issues
- Recruit Veteran Advocates aka “Battle Buddies”
- Support various veteran empowerment programs; i.e. Honor Courage Commitment, Inc. (HCC), Equest Hooves for Heroes, Brain Treatment Foundation, Center for BrainHealth, REACT, Adaptive Training Foundation, and more."
