Al Lopez Park
The 2017 Race
The 2nd Annual SpeakUp5k Tampa, presented by Staywell / WellCare, was a huge success. We had nearly 600 participants and over 200 volunteers on Saturday, October 7th. The Tampa community rallied together to show a ton of support for Cameron’s vision. Eighteen high school students, representing 12 different schools, served on our teen ambassador program and carried the SpeakUp message into their schools and neighborhoods for several months leading up to the race. Many local businesses supported the event, and although race morning was hot and humid, the high energy from volunteers helped each participant cross the finish line. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Healthy Transitions program of the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay. From the enthusiasm felt by the Tampa community, we know that Cameron’s message will continue to spread throughout the upcoming year. A huge thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, participants, and supporters.

SpeakUp5k Tampa gives back! A portion of the proceeds from this race will be donated to the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay to support their Florida Healthy Transitions program that is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The program aims to improve access to treatment and support services for youth and young adults ages 16 – 25 that either have, are experiencing symptoms, or are at risk of developing a serious mental health condition.
Stick around for a bit after the race! We will have music, food, and vendors – a fun atmosphere for the whole family to enjoy. This is the perfect place to celebrate with family and friends, to learn how the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay is helping those battling depression and anxiety, and to help us show our support for all of the other wonderful organizations in Tampa that help make it possible for us to continue to SpeakUp, loud and clear!
