This number is symbolic: Each day, 22 former service members die from suicide.
"We also couldn't be more grateful for the men and women who serve our country every day," says Faris.
The 22 Push-Up Challenge works the same way the Ice Bucket Challenge did. Each time someone does it, they nominate three friends to do it, too.
The organization 22Kill, which advocates for veterans and raises awareness of veteran suicides, is spearheading the movement with the goal of getting people to do 22 million push-ups. It asks that people share their push-up videos with the hashtag #22pushups.
All sorts of people and groups, from Fuller House star Candace Cameron Bure to One Direction drummer Josh Devine and the British Army, have gotten on board.
