To promote awareness of the issues surrounding veteran suicide as well as healthy ways to promote positive mental health through physical health and wellness. Our goal is provide important resources to student veterans and peers on organizations providing physical health and wellness programs.

We will do 22 push-ups every 22 minutes. In between, sponsoring organizations will speak for a few minutes sharing program information. Some will discuss how physical health and
wellness has impacted their life.

Veteran resource tables will be on display to hand out organization and community information. The challenge is not just do push-ups but to explain the concept of a buddy check, battle buddy, or wingman, as well as to help dispel misconceptions of talking about suicide, and remove the stigma from asking for help.
