Steve Hopwood, a PC with Avon and Somerset Constabulary and his dog, Monty, took on the #22Kill challenge, to do 22 push-ups as part of a viral challenge to raise awareness for veteran suicide. The challenge is in solidarity of the 22 US veterans on average who commit suicide every day.
A video of the pair was shared by Avon and Somerset Constabulary. The goal of the #22Kill challenge is to reach 22million push-ups.
The aim is to ‘honour those who serve and to raise awareness for veteran suicide prevention through education and empowerment’ according to the campaign’s website.
