In an effort to raise awareness about the 22 veterans who commit suicide each day due to post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health issues, TWO war heroes have launched a world record bid to get more than 1200 people doing push ups – to raise awareness of military suicides.
Army veterans Calum MacLeod and Terry Lowe – who have both been nominated as Daily Record Our Heroes – have issued a call to arms to get young and old signed up for their record attempt. Former sergeant major Terry has already become an internet sensation after filming himself doing 22 push-ups every day for 22 days while in Iraq.
Now, the pair want anyone aged from eight to 80 to try to break the world record for the number of people in one place doing simultaneous push ups.
Dwayne Johnson, Chris Pratt and Chris Evans are among the stars who have taken on a charitable push-up challenge to support veterans’ mental health.
