    Participants will do 22 push-ups every 22 minutes. In between, sponsoring organizations will speak for a few minutes either sharing a personal story or talking about the programs that are offered and how physical health and wellness has changed their outlook on life and the impact it has had on their life. Veteran resource tables will be on display to hand out organization and community information. The goal of the event is to promote awareness of the issues surrounding Veterans’ suicide as well as healthy ways to promote positive mental health through physical health and wellness. The event will also raise awareness and provide resources to student Veterans and peers regarding organizations providing health and wellness programs.
