10 Celebrities Who Are Getting Down with the 22 Push-Up Challenge
Just like in 2014 with the Ice Bucket Challenge, Hollywood is coming together to raise awareness in yet another viral campaign. Stars like Chris Pratt and Chris Evans are getting down with the #22PushupChallenge, started by #22Kill, to shed light on mental health issues suffered by men and women in the military.
Participants are challenged to complete 22 push-ups to symbolize the number of veterans who commit suicide everyday. The goal is to reach 22 millions push-ups within 22 days, while spreading the message about where active-duty service members and veterans alike can get help by providing contacts to places such StopSoldierSuicide.org.
Needless to say, everyone has been down to drop and give 22 for the cause. Here are just some of the celebrities we’ve spotted doing the 22 Push-Up Challenge.
#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 😂💪🏾🇺🇸
