Kyiv Ivan Bohun Military College cadets took part in #22PushUpChallenge aiming at raising awareness to veteran suicide prevention through education and empowerment.

The 22 Pushup Challenge, sometimes called the 22KILL Pushup Challenge, is an activity involving pressing out twenty-two pushups to promote awareness for veteran suicide prevention along with honoring military service members and veterans.

The original campaign named #22KILL was created by an OEF Marine veteran named Andrew K. Nguyen, founder of multiple veteran organizations - 22KILL, HCC, White Star Families of America, and veteran. Me. The "Pushup Challenge"  had first started in 2011 through the veteran nonprofit organization Honor Courage Commitment, Inc., but later continued to evolve while maintaining the foundation to honor military veterans and their service. 

The algorithm of participation is quite simple. In the beginning of the video, make an introduction stating your name, why are you pushing or who are you are pushing for. You can post the video directly to your own social page.
