You may remember, Cameron Gallagher, 16, died suddenly after completing the Shamrock half-marathon this year in Virginia Beach. We want to continue celebrating Cameron Gallagher’s legacy: Fight, Finish, Faith – with a smile. Before Cameron died, she created and planned a 5K race hoping to host it sometime in the future. She contacted vendors and sponsors asking them to help her “SpeakUp” for Teenage Depression. Cameron was focused on eliminating the stigma with depression, and she wanted the race to be held for that cause.
So, come join us as we celebrate. Pass the message, and help us finish what she started.
