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
Join our movement and make mental health a priority in YOUR community! We encourage families to run/walk together and to make that easy, kids 12 and under participate for free. Please note that all participants must register, regardless of age, and youth must be accompanied by an adult. Event T-shirts are not included with free participation but are available for purchase.
