In 2020, our founder, Dr. Adel Korkor, was turning 70. He decided to run/walk 70 km in one day to raise $70,000 to support mental healthcare services for frontline and essential workers during Covid-19. The goal was exceeded, front line and essential workers saw the benefit through five new programs, and a new signature event was born.
The Hidden Pandemic, filmed in 2020 before and during the first 70.70.70 event, follows nursing students, professional athletes, board members, wellness providers, and of course, Dr. Korkor, as they journey through the initial waves of Covid-19. The premiere screening of this documentary short, The Hidden Pandemic, will be followed by a talkback session with the director, Pamela Westphal and executive producer, Dr. Adel B. Korkor.
