FAQ’s- ALL ABOUT RACE TEAM
Why Does SpeakUp Race Team return to Shamrock every year?
Cameron had a goal of running 13.1 miles in 2014, and she accomplished this goal through hard work and dedication.
Together we will make a team goal of finishing our race, not only during the race weekend but in our daily lives, as well.

training plans, fundraising platform and support, team dinner, workshops, and family-friendly social activities.
Why a fundraising commitment?
The Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation provides FREE in-school programs which raise awareness and provide
education regarding depression and anxiety in teenagers. Funds raised go directly towards this programming,
which along with our community outreach, help to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Over the course of the year-long membership, SpeakUp Race Team members commit to raise funds which
go directly to supporting these programs
In 2017, we reached over 17,500 students and their advocates in 19 schools across the Greater Richmond area.
Additionally, over 2,000 teens and adults benefitted from CKG’s mindfulness education.
The money you raise allows CKG to continue to deliver these tools at no cost to educate and advocate for those in need.
We offer one-on-one fundraising support to help you reach your goal, and we encourage creativity and fun in your
fundraising approach, keeping in touch with Cameron’s spirit.
The annual Race Team fundraising commitment is $350 for adults and $100 for students.
