Making a difference, simply by being present! Come join the fun as we welcome families, businesses and individuals to this 5k Run/Walk for Mental Health. We go to the doctor when experiencing bodily ills, but have a hard time picking up the phone to make an appointment when it comes to ill mental health. COVID has revealed how common it is to experience emotional, psychological or social blows to our well being, yet many aren't comfortable getting help. YOU CAN HELP break that stigma by showing up and showing your support. We need your help with things like setting up/tearing down the course and registration table, greeting participants, distributing shirts/bibs, setting up and staffing a water station, giving directions, placing signage, and/or cheering on participants throughout the course. Add your unique spark to our event! We are the Adel B Korkor Foundation for Mental Health, and we're on a mission to help make the world a better place for those living with challenges and/or illness related to their mental health. We invite you to join us on this amazing journey!

Mission Statement

The mission of the Five Fifty Fifty Run/Walk Series is to make the world a better place for those suffering from mental illness. 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 under-served groups such as veterans, minorities and those suffering from addiction.

Description

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.

This 5th annual movement will kick off on April 23, 2022 in Honolulu, Hawaii and finish in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on June 12. For a full list of the cities and dates with information on each event visit www.fivefiftyfifty.com
