Due to the overwhelming success and growth of the SpeakUp5k race series, the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation has created a way for athletes of all abilities to compete under the SpeakUp umbrella.  With the SpeakUp Race Team, athletes from across the country can “Race with Purpose” to support the CKG Foundation’s mission to fulfill 16-year-old Cameron’s dream and legacy by being a positive force that works to cultivate awareness and understanding of teenage depression and anxiety. Join us as we RACE WITH PURPOSE!
