Gary Accepts Bristol’s 22 Pushup Challenge to Honor Those Who Serve
22 Soldiers die everyday through suicide. It's totally unacceptable and efforts are there to eliminate that number. One of those efforts is 22Kill.com and they've challenged every man, woman and child to do 22 pushups to honor those who serve.
From their website we see the official challenge:
Help us reach our goal to get 22 Million pushups – To honor those who serve and to raise awareness for veteran suicide prevention through education and empowerment. Every pushup counts so don’t be shy to show your support for our veterans. You can do as many or few pushups as you can or choose. Whether it’s 1 or 100 in a row, we will accept them however they come. They can be assisted (on your knees), incline (on a desk/wall), or if you physically are unable to do any, we’ll even take air pushups. They all count towards the goal as long as you follow the instructions below.
Well, Erin Bristol of the Kiss Country morning show accepted that challenge and furthered the challenge to me. Course, when it comes to our military, there was no way I could refuse.
However, I did refuse to do these pushups "girly style" and wanted to do them like a real man....except I'm too old to do them "military style."
