The Five Fifty Fifty Run/Walk Series was developed by Adel B. Korkor, M.D. as a way to address the epidemic of mental health challenges in America. His idea of running a 5k race in all 50 states in 50 days was a way to start a movement that spread from one coast to the other, one state at a time.
In light of the Covid -19/Coronavirus Pandemic, and in an effort to keep our participants both mentally and physically healthy, we have taken important steps to REIMAGINE how we are running the 2020 Five Fifty Fifty Run/Walk for Mental Health. Join us the week of May 18-24, 2020 for the 5k.50.50. REIMAGINED, a virtual 5k run/walk in which everyone, everywhere can participate!

The mission of the Five Fifty Fifty Run/Walk Series is to make the world a better place for those suffering from mental illnesses. The funds raised from this will be used by the AB Korkor Foundation to increase awareness, address the shortage of affordable care, emphasize the importance of wellness in mental health, fund research, and focus on underserved groups such as veterans, minorities and those suffering from addiction.
