PTSD Push-Up Challenge

My good friend Chris Klink is undertaking a Facebook challenge to raise awareness of the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder on emergency workers and veterans.

According to Chris, in the United States, 22 veterans and first responders die from suicide due to PTSD every single day.

In an effort to bring this staggering statistic to light, Chris has vowed to do 22 push-ups a day for twenty-two straight days. He will post a video on Facebook each day, assuming he remembers to press record on his smartphone. In addition he will challenge others to do their own 22 day push-up tribute.

Years of bursitis in my shoulders rule out push-ups for me, but I am pleased to help out by promoting Chris’ admirable undertaking.
