Here is Lynn, half of the "Sisters From Brothers," doing her 22 push ups for the #22Kill campaign at one of our concert events this spring. Be on the lookout for us at other summer concert events!
In honor of our military that allows us the freedoms we enjoy today, we want to acknowledge and raise awareness about the #22Kill
History of #22KILL
Honor Courage Commitment, Inc. started the #22KILL
movement in 2013 after learning about the staggering statistic that an average of 22 veterans are killed by suicide every day. Honor Courage Commitment, Inc. has committed to researching and understanding the genesis of this epidemic, and educating the general public on the issue. #22KILL
is a platform to raise awareness not just towards veteran suicide, but also to the issues that can lead them to suicide. These mental health issues can stem from Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, or the struggles and stresses of transitioning from military to civilian life.
The solution is veteran empowerment. One of the biggest challenges veterans face is finding a sense of purpose after service. #22KILL
directly supports veteran empowerment programs that help veterans maximize their talents and understand their value outside of the military. #22KILL
also continually provides support for other veteran organizations, treatment centers, and community events and projects.
How to participate:
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.
