Linetec participates in the ’22 Push Up Challenge’

Linetec participated in the 22 Push Up Challenge to raise awareness for Veterans.
When the statistics came out that 22 veterans a day were committing suicide it was almost unbelievable. Read more about this statistic from CNN.

The goal of the 22 push-up challenge is to draw attention not only to the high number of veteran suicides, but to the mental health issues that affect the community as well.

Thanks to Veteran and Linetec’s 3rd shift Anodize supervisor, Phil Mleziva for counting off the push-ups!

 

The #22PushupChallenge was started by the veteran empowerment group Honor Courage Commitment. The group’s 22KILL movement works to build a community of support for veterans and raise awareness for mental health challenges they face.
The #22PushupChallenge is one way to put a little sweat behind the always-nebulous motive of “awareness.” The ultimate goal of the project is to reach 22 million push-ups. For more information on how your push-ups can count visit activeheroes.org/22pushups/
