A RACE WITH PURPOSE
Cameron designed this race to be bright, fun, silly and honest.
Whether you run, walk, or meander along the course with your kids, this day is sure to be exciting!
No judgements, no stigma, just fun!
Fun for the whole family!
The SpeakUp5k race series serves as a primary vehicle to drive the SpeakUp message
into the community in a powerful, positive, familial and active way. The purpose of the race is for people
and families to come together and “Speak Up” for those who are suffering, for those who are battling
depression and anxiety, and to challenge people to visibly and vocally support one another.
As Cameron said, "Let's Finish This!"
WHAT MAKES THE SPEAKUP5K UNIQUE?
Cameron planned fun zones throughout the race to keep participants motivated and smiling. Don’t be surprised if you run through a “Rave” fun zone or get squirted with a water gun. A signature part of the race is “Quote Alley,” where Cameron’s own sketches and quotes are sure to inspire participants.
Each SpeakUp5k ends with a festive party at the finish line. It is a celebration of each person’s individual achievement that day, as well as a celebration that together we are impacting the community by increasing understanding of mental illness.
The SpeakUp5k is a great opportunity for teams of all kinds. Whether you involve your school, family, office, or neighborhood, create a group and run/walk together!
