We did not let the tropical storm stop us!
The 4th SpeakUp5k Tampa, FL looked a little bit different this year.
Yes, we still had cowbells and marshals and Cameron’s Quote Alley...but all indoors!
Tampa Bay community - thanks for braving the storm and showing up to SpeakUP!
WHAT A DAY!! Thank you to everyone who made today possible.
When storms come our way, we’ve gotta improvise and we’ve “Gotta Stay Positive.”
Thanks for making today so special. Glazer Children's Museum - your hospitality went
above and beyond!! To all of our sponsors, participants, and volunteers,
and to our special group of student ambassadors - you continue to amaze us.
Thanks for SpeakingUp today and everyday. Let’s Finish This!
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!
