They participated in the 22 push-up challenge. The 22PushupChallenge was started by the veteran empowerment group Honor Courage Commitment. The group's 22KILL movement works to build a community of support for veterans and raise awareness for mental health challenges they face. The ultimate goal of the project is to reach 22 million pushups, and the group uses people's tags to keep a live tally.

High Country Motorsports started the challenge in January, and each month the Sunday before the 22nd people meet at 12:30pm for 22 pushups. Anyone is welcome to participate.
