Day 2: 22 Pushup Challenge

Day 2 of the 22 Day 22 Pushup Challenge…

I nominate Todd Falcone for the 22 day push up challenge (no bucket of ice water required)

Every day an average of 22 veterans commit suicide. That’s 22 people EVERY SINGLE DAY. As a community we pride ourselves on being proud and never backing down, but it’s important to know that there are times when we all need help. Facing your demons is not a recognition of failure, but rather an act that requires immense courage. We are all here for one another, and I hope that as a community and a brotherhood we can work together to get that number to zero.

22 Pushup Challenge

Live up to that creed of Semper Fidelis, and always be there for your family of fellow veterans.


Day 2 of my 22 day 22 Pushup Challenge completed. My nominee for today is Todd Falcone – The Fearless Networker!! You start tomorrow!

The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push-ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted (from your knees) push-ups or that you have to stop and take a break that’s fine. The goal is to get them all done in one video
* Every day you must nominate a different person. Let’s reach as many people as possible.
* And finally, have fun with this. This is a simple and fun way to get the word out about a matter that more people need to be aware of. These brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms only to get back and feel lost. It’s sad that so many good veterans feel that suicide is the only way out.


And for those of you that saw me nominate my wife Leslie Hamburger yesterday, she CRUSHED it today! Her pushups are better than a lot of the guys I know.


Check out day 1 of Leslie’s 22 day 22 pushup challenge.  The funniest part is, Leslie was out walking and exercising with Jenny, a dear friend of hers.  She asked Jenny to film her pushups and at the very end Leslie nominated Jenny.  You’ve got to see this!


This is going to be a blast watching this awareness spread…  who will be next?  #22pushupchallenge
