Whether you run, swim, walk, or bike,
We are actively raising awareness of teenage mental health.
“This team is special. We're special because we're a combination of talent, young and old, experienced and novice. But those barriers are meaningless to our team love, and that's how life should be. Non-reflective of your skill or experience, but of how you drive purpose and mission into the hearts of others.” -David Gallagher, Cameron's Dad
Honoring Cameron's Legacy
Athletes of all levels and experiences race with purpose by raising awareness of teenage mental health, and raising funds to help the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation provide FREE mental health education t0 teenagers. Let's Finish This!
WHO CAN JOIN US?
Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned athlete, the SpeakUp Race Team welcomes all levels of fitness from a variety of different activities. Our goal is to create a group of athletes that becomes a positive force that works to cultivate awareness and understanding of teenage depression and anxiety. Mental illness doesn’t discriminate, and neither do we. Whether you run, swim, walk, or bike, we want you to race with us and with purpose.
Membership perks include: team swag, community, fundraising guidance, training, and purpose.
Fundraising is a key element in spreading the CKG message.
To help us work toward our goal of increasing awareness and understanding of teenage depression and anxiety, each teammate will have a yearly fundraising commitment of $350. Team members who are 18 and under will have a yearly fundraising commitment of $100. Although fundraising is a key element in spreading the CKG message, you will not have to conquer this goal alone! We will help you reach (and exceed!) your fundraising goal.
