22 Pushups: Day 9

Friday, July 01, 2016

 

Gerald "J.R." Wilson, Commander of the Department of California Disabled American Veterans, as well as Antioch Mayor Wade Harper and Pittsburg Mayor Ben Johnson joined me today on Day 9 of my 22 day, 22 daily pushup challenge to raise awareness about Veterans' suicides. Today, we did our pushups at the Antioch Veterans Memorial Building where Loaves and Fishes volunteers were preparing to serve lunch to Antioch’s most needy, including a number of homeless veterans. On average about 8,000 veterans commit suicide each year. If you are a Veteran and you need help, please call 1-800-273-8255, and press 1. Help is available, you are not alone
