5K. 50 States. 50 Days.
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 problems. His idea of running a 5k race in all 50 states in 50 days is a way to create a movement that will spread from one coast to the other, one state at a time.
The 2019 movement kicked off on April 27, 2019 in Honolulu, Hawaii and finished in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on June 15. For a full list of the cities and dates with information on each event, click here. If you are interested in being part of our tour, click here.
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.
