This November, Home Base and PTC joined efforts to create the 22k Push-Up Challenge to bring awareness to the very real struggle of mental health and suicide among Veterans. An estimated 22 Veterans are tragically lost to suicide every day. It’s preventable with proper support and intervention.
PTC aimed to bring together both Veterans and non-Veterans with a task of completing 22 push-ups per day from November 4-11. Participants paid a fee of $22 to join the movement, and the campaign in total raised over $82,000 for Veteran Suicide Prevention Awareness. Thanks to the 850+ participants, including large employee participation from PTC and TIBCO, along with a generous $25,000 gift from PTC, this campaign nearly quadrupled its original fundraising goal of $22,000.
Home Base thanks PTC for its partnership and philanthropy, as well as all of the participants who committed to supporting Home Base’s mission to heal the invisible wounds of war.
