If you have not heard of the the #22KILL Push-Ups challenge is to help raise awareness about veteran suicide in the U.S. by doing 22 push-ups in a row. Thousands of people have taken the challenge, but perhaps none cuter than a canine in England named Monty and his handler Steve Hopwood. Check out his viral video.
Participants do 22 push-ups everyday for 22 days, then post videos of their efforts on social media.
The 22KILL movement, was started to highlight the statistic that an average of 22 veterans commit suicide in the U.S. every day.
“Twenty-two U.S. veterans commit suicide per day and this is echoed in the British former-service community,” the police department posted. Suicide is also the “single biggest cause of death in men under 45” in the United Kingdom.
“Help spread the word and look after each other. Someone you know may be suffering in silence,” the department added.
