BENEFITING: The Cameron K Gallagher Foundation
EVENT: CKG Shamrock Race Team 2016
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2016
Words cannot describe the immense love Cameron Gallagher possessed. The way we became friends was by her texting me, asking me if we could be. I was immediately struck by her genuine sense of honesty and love. We talked about her highs and lows, went on various lunch dates, tried to make brownies but got distracted by singing country music. Being able to share that love with her for a year or so was a blessing for me because not only did I see the love, but the pain. Cameron struggled with depression and anxiety and watching that was hard, but watching her pick herself up again through the love of her friends, family, and God was breathtaking. Cameron showed me not only love but strength and endurance. I learned through her how to love someone unconditionally and how to be genuinely kind to everyone.
Hopefully, God can give me some extra strength, endurance, and kindness as I run 13.1 miles in remembrance of the fight she fought for so many years. I'm running this for Cam and myself, but also for those who are struggling to find their strength and endurance. Keep fighting the good fight.
