Day 4 Complete
February 26, 2016
BENEFITING: Stop Soldier Suicide
EVENT DATE: May 28, 2016
Jamie Boyle -
I have joined this team, lead by Helene Dumais, to raise awareness of soldier suicide and to help families of veterans who are affected.
I will commit to doing each day for 22 days:
- 22 pushups,
- 22 body-weight squats,
- 22 situps
- 22 burpees
- 22 jump squats
Like my team leader, I will do 1 set of 22 reps for each of the four US military branches (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines) + 1 set for the 3 unified military branches of the Canadian Armed forces (Army, Navy, Air Fore)
Doing these exercises for 22 days in no way replicates the challenge that our heroes make everyday, putting their lives on the line. I can only help raise awareness of their plight.
If you are able, please sponsor my team and help me support the veterans and their families stop these horrible occurrences.

Join my team as I endure 888K for veterans to Stop Soldier Suicide.
I am the spouse of a US military veteran. I am also an endurance athlete who intends to inspire women by becoming the first female athlete to accomplish extreme endurance events, including a 250 mile race, self-supported, across Florida (www.helenedumaisathlete.com). Starting on May 19, I will run the Endurance Society’s Infinitus 888k trail race. With a 10-day cap to complete the task, the race ends just a few days prior Memorial Day. No woman has ever finished it. How is this a 22in22 challenge? 22k for each four US military branches (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines) equals 88k, which is the length of one loop. I have to run the loop 10 times to complete this 888k race. I am running to be a source of inspiration for female veterans and spouses, helping them to find strength and power to solve what may look impossible at times. I run for them.
Join me NOW to raise money and awareness for our heroes. My goal is to reach $8,888. Become part of my team (click the “join team button”) and commit yourself to run 22k or 88k during the 10 days I will run non-stop to complete this 888k race. If that isn’t tough enough, take a look at other options for distance at: www.endurancesociety.org/infinitus.html.
