Virtual Participant

Welcome to the Virtual Participant option for the 2021 American Legion Challenge 22 event to End Veteran Suicide.  It’s so easy and can be a lot fun.  Or goal this year is to have participants from all over the world join us.  All you have to do is take a video of you “doing something 22” related; post it to you social media; and add the hash tag #Challenge22Vet to your post some time prior to the live event being held on November 13th, 2021.  We will then pull your video down from the internet by searching for all #Challenge22Vet social media posts and play them on a huge Mobile video truck that will be following our live walkers.  It only takes a $22 donation to participate.
