USA TODAY Sports’ Trysta Krick helped raise awareness for veterans by completing the 22 push-up challenge alongside NBA and MLB athletes including Shabazz Muhammad, Rob Covington, Mark Jackson, Jett Blandy, Taj Gibson and Corey Brewer.
Help us reach our goal to get 22 Million pushups – To honor those who serve and to raise awareness for veteran suicide prevention through education and empowerment. Every pushup counts so don’t be shy to show your support for our veterans. You can do as many or few pushups as you can or choose. Whether it’s 1 or 100 in a row, we will accept them however they come. They can be assisted (on your knees), incline (on a desk/wall), or if you physically are unable to do any, we’ll even take air pushups. They all count towards the goal as long as you follow the instructions below.
