Wisconsin doctor running 50 5K's across nation

Posted: Updated:

For Wisconsin-based doctor Adel Korkor, life at 67 years old doesn't mean retirement- instead he's taking on an expedition across the United States. 

Dr. Korkor is running a 5K in every single state in 50 days. 

His adventure started in Hawaii, and he'll finish the entire project in Wisconsin. 

Korkor says this project is all about raising awareness for mental health, he believes not enough people address it in health care. 

The inspiration behind running a 5K to do it came from his own experience, Korkor has lived with anxiety and panic disorder- he says running is something that's helped him through his own challenges. 

After Sunday's stop in Colorado Springs, Korkor will be traveling to Cheyenne, Wyoming.
