HELP SUPPORT OUR FUTURE.
OUR POSITIVE IMPACT ON TEENS' LIVES:
IN 2019 WE HELPED OVER
YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
We work directly with schools and community groups to inspire supportive and productive conversations around mental health and wellness which lead to self-awareness,
self-acceptance and hope for help.
Through our programs,
CKG hopes teens and their influencers everywhere find the courage to SpeakUp.
The SpeakUp5k serves as a primary vehicle to drive the SpeakUp
message into the community in a powerful, positive, 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.
Our signature event,
SpeakUp LightUp, brings hope and light to the otherwise dark topics of depression and anxiety. Wearing white paint suits decorated with glowing paint and bright accessories, guests radiate bright colors that light the way to breaking barriers. This party with a live auction is changing the way people perceive and talk about mental health. Through the generosity of sponsors, we put this event on with minimal cost so that the majority of the proceeds can go directly to providing free mental health programming to our teens and our community.
One of the cornerstones of CKG Foundation is providing FREE mental health programming in schools and in our community.
Our funding comes from individual donors and businesses, foundation grants, our SpeakUp5k, our SpeakUp Race Team, and our signature SpeakUp LightUp party.
