Wounde Warriors

22/22 Challenge Stroudsburg Junior High goes all out for Veterans! Stroudsburg Junior High has taken on the 22/22 challenge to bring awareness for post-war traumatic stress. The challenge is 22 push-ups for 22 days; this is the amount of Veterans we lose every day from PWTS. The students, faculty, and employees have accepted the challenge, and are turning it into a fundraiser for the "PA Wounded Warriors". Each morning the entire school does push-ups to a count over the school PA system. Each person donates a minimum of $1.00 or more for a pin and a signed pledge. All proceeds go to PA Wounded Warriors. The challenge ends on Veterans Day, Nov. 11th, with an event and a representative from Wounded Warriors will be present. All donations will be presented to them at that time. Let's support our Vets, for all they have sacrificed for us!
