#22PushUpChallenge Raising awareness for our 22 US vets who commit suicide daily. If you’re a vet and you’re going thru it, just know we’re thinking about you and you’re not alone. Be strong, have faith, keep fighting that good fight and there’s always a better day. I challenge my boys @kevinhart4real and @justinjames99 as well as our history making first black OLYMPIC Gold medalist in swimming @swimone13. Thanks to my bud @prattprattpratt for passin’ the torch and Hobbs the beast for the bad breath kisses. I’ll take em all day ?????
Dwayne easily completes the 22 push-ups and has enough energy to talk to his dog and laugh. His challenge ended with him challenging comedian Kevin Hart, JJ Watt, and the first black female to win a gold medal in individual swimming, Simone Manuel. He ended his video stating to any veterans watching, “If you’re going through it, we’re thinking about you, and you’re not alone.” His fellow challengers also completed their sets with adorable dogs along.

The #22pushupchallenge has no signs of slowing down as celebrities challenge multiple people when they’re done. As we know from the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, raising awareness and funds for a cause using an interesting task can do good. For those who love to run, you can learn about a 22-mile run for vet suicide prevention at StopSoldierSuicide.org. We hope that you will be moved by this terrifying statistic and will help to reduce veteran suicide.
