In September, former MizzouRec staff member Eric Maki challenged us to complete 22 pushups every day for 22 days for veteran suicide prevention awareness.

22KILL, who started the movement in 2013, works to close the gap between civilians and veterans and combat the large number of veteran suicides (every day, 22 veterans die by suicide). They started the hashtag #22pushupchallenge, where participants complete 22 pushups and post to social media to raise awareness.
