We look forward to year 5 of the SpeakUp5k Tampa! About 40% of participants are youth under the age of 18, thanks to our amazing student ambassadors who help us spread the SpeakUp mission year-round. The race is held at the beautiful Al Lopez Park. Along with bringing CKG programs to the area, a portion of the race proceeds will benefit the Healthy Transitions program of Crisis Center of Tampa Bay.
Thank you for a wonderful, well organized, and meaningful event! We had a great time, while supporting the SpeakUp cause!

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!
