For Memorial Day, there's a challenge going viral to prevent veteran suicide.
   
Called the push up challenge, the goal is to get people around the word to record themselves doing a total of 22 million push-ups for the organization “22 Kill.”

Record yourself doing pushups and post it online with the hashtag of the number of pushups you do with #22Kill. (Example: If you did 5 pushups you would enter:  “#5pushups for #22KILL”

The organization “22 Kill” works to raise awareness about suicide and mental health issues.
