All good things must come to an end, and today Steve completed day 22 of the 22 Pushup Challenge. While there’s no doubt that Steve must be relieved to have completed the challenge and no longer have to do his daily round of pushups, his fans will be bummed to not get our daily doses of him, at least … until the next challenge! As promised, Steve brought out the crew from Safe House to help him complete his task. And for his last day, he called out his mate, Denis O’Hare.

Honor Courage Commitment, Inc. started the movement back in 2013 after learning the staggering statistics that on the average 22 veterans are killed by suicide daily in the United States. Mental health issues lead to these suicides and stem primarily from conditions such as PTS (Post Traumatic Stress) and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), and struggles of transitioning out of the military.
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.
