Description

The Five Fifty Fifty Run/Walk for Mental Health Series is a five kilometer run/walk that occurs in each of the fifty U.S. states over fifty consecutive days. The series supports the AB Korkor Foundation’s mission to make the world a better place for those suffering from ill mental health. Funds raised through this flagship event are utilized to:

  • Increase awareness of ill mental health
  • Reduce stigma
  • Address the shortage of affordable care
  • Emphasize the importance of physical exercise and emotional wellness in maintaining mental health and overall wellbeing
  • Fund research
  • Focus on underserved communities such as veterans, minorities and those suffering from addiction
