LIVE EVENT - ATTENTION WISCONSIN PARTICIPANTS!
Covid is retreating in Wisconsin and vaccination rates are up, allowing us to close the series in-person! Milwaukee County has issued us a permit for a live event to conclude the 5.50.50 series. If you'd like to join the LIVE Run/Walk on Saturday, June 12, we'll see you at Lake Park, 3233 E. Kenwood Blvd, Milwaukee, WI 53211.
for the 9:00 AM start time.
Participants must be pre-registered; we won't be able to add people at the event. PPE and a hand sanitizing station will be available on site. At the start, we'll ask runners/walkers to be 6' apart and you'll see reminders around the course to practice social distancing. Things may be different by the time the event rolls around; we'll keep you posted. We'll start and finish at the park building on the Bowling Greens, see the maps for details.
We are the AB Korkor Foundation for Mental Health.
One in five adults in the United States is diagnosed with a mental illness - that’s over 65 million people! Over half of those individuals don’t receive care. We’re on a mission to increase awareness surrounding the prevalence of mental health diagnoses, and the staggering difficulties that individuals face navigating mental health care in this country. From affordable and accessible care to removing the stigma, we’re partnering with other mental health organizations to provide advocacy, education and research funding. Our mental health and our physical health are connected, so let’s make the world a better place for those suffering with mental illnesses!
"Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.” -Plato
