22 Pushups: Day 5

Monday, June 27, 2016

On Day 5 of my 22 day, 22 daily pushup challenge to raise awareness about veterans' suicide, I was joined by friends from the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) in Sacramento. We did our pushups at the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Capitol Park, a sobering memorial that has the names of all 5,657 Californians who died in the Vietnam War. 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.
