Last night I had a special guest for day eight of the 22 pushups a day for 22 day challenge! Like he says "what do you hear what do you say?" Vic Dibitetto decided to join me to help raise awareness to the 22 veterans a day who take their own lives.

If you'd like me to nominate you to join in, please tweet me @realstevetrev or e-mail me at strevelise@aol.com. I would be happy to mention your name on the air and tell your story if you'd like. Today I nominate Janine Gersna who called me on the air to volunteer. Thanks so much Janine!

The rules are simple:

  • Once you are nominated your 22 days start the following day.
  • Every day you record yourself doing 22 push-ups. Try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted (from your knees) push-ups or that you have to stop and take a break that's fine but try to get them all done in one video.
  • Every day you must nominate a different person. Try to choose people you think will want to do this and/or have the ability to do it.
  • And finally, have fun with this. This is a simple and fun way to get the word out about a matter that more people need to be aware about. These brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms and its sad that so many veterans feel that suicide is the only way out.
