What is #22KILL?

#22KILL is a global movement created by veterans with a mission to:

  • Honor those who serve(d)
  • Raise awareness to veteran suicide and mental health issues such as PTS and TBI
  • Educate the public about current veteran-related topics and issues
  • Recruit Veteran Advocates aka “Battle Buddies”
  • Support various veteran empowerment programs; i.e. Honor Courage Commitment, Inc. (HCC), Equest Hooves for Heroes, Brain Treatment Foundation, Center for BrainHealth, REACT, Adaptive Training Foundation, and more.

Veteran Advocates aka “Battle Buddies” wear the #22KILL Honor Ring™ – a black band worn on the right index finger. By choosing to become part of Team #22KILL and wearing this ring, you are committed to:

  • Research and learn about your local veteran service organizations and what their missions and needs are
  • Focus on veteran strengths and challenge negative attitudes around veteran “issues”
  • Advocate for veterans in a positive light in any platform you have
  • Raise awareness to the issues of veteran suicide, and follow up with a positive solution through education and empowerment through programs offered from local nonprofits and veteran service organizations

Believing that veterans are America’s greatest asset and learning to love them and show them that you care

What does this mean to you?

This movement is spreading to Canada along with many other countries in the world who are losing veterans to PTSD and various me take issues. 

We want to show our support. This will be expressed in a few ways and we hope to have you join us. 

We will be incorporating 22 push ups in every warm up for 22 days. We want you to take a video of the action and post it to FB, tagging yourself and whoever is joining you. Check in to gym to let people know where you are doing it. 

The best video will get special recognition. 

Take a look at the website and educate yourself a bit further of the cause.
