4th Annual Challenge 22 Event
14 November 2020
The American Legion in Winter Garden, FL is hosting our 4th Annual Challenge 22 event on Nov 14 2020. We would love to have you be a part of this event, either In-Person or Virtually.
Attached is some of the information we have prepared about the event.

The Virtual walk is free, but we are encouraging everyone donate $22 if they can. Remember, 100% of the proceeds go to stopping veteran suicide
We will be using the social media hashtag: #challenge22vet . By using this hashtag, those participating can take pictures and videos and send them to us so we can simulcast them at our event. We will also be broadcasting the event via Facebook live. We will have a video truck with large TV screens on it that will follow us all day (on the route and at the event) showing the various videos from around the country. We have several sites in Puerto Rico, Oregon and several other states already committed to participating. Our goal is to have at least one post from every department participate. It can be one person or a whole crew. They can walk 2.2miles, do 22 push-ups, walk 2.2 times around their block/neighborhood, or anything 22 related. We are encouraging creativity.
Nashville recording artist Sean Holcomb will be preforming from 1-3pm with special guest God Smack bass guitar player Robbie Merrill. The mobile Vietnam wall and the Global War on Terror Wall will be at the Veteran’s Park site for guests to view.
Last year we had close to 800 walkers. But with COVID and the delayed start in promoting our event, it is more important than ever to spread the word. While we are planning for 500+ local walkers, the sky’s the limit nation-wide!
We appreciate all your help spreading the word and participating in this year’s Challenge 22.
