THE STORY:

I am running the Shamrock Half Marathon with the Cameron K Gallager (CKD) Foundation. This will support and assist in furthering Cameron's legacy. I am very excited to run, in her memory! I hope you will consider contributing to the furthering of her vision.

Cameron’s Legacy:

On March 16, 2014 at the Shamrock Half Marathon in Virginia Beach, sixteen-year-old Cameron K. Gallagher passed away as she crossed the finish line from an undiagnosed heart condition. On that day Cameron struggled to finish a race that she had set as a personal goal for herself—and was victorious. But that was not the only hard fight that Cameron fought. Cameron suffered from severe depression and anxiety for several years. The ever-smiling teen was growing tired of keeping her struggle a private battle. She knew that like her, many teens were in great pain behind closed doors. As she trained for the half marathon, she took it upon herself to address the misplaced stigma held by so many about teenage depression. Her dream was to create a 5k race in her community to help raise awareness of teenage depression. She had titled that race the SpeakUp5k in order to draw attention to the issue of teen depression and to let other teens like herself know that it was okay to “Speak Up” about their personal battles. She had titled that race the SpeakUp5k. (See Cameron’s sponsorship request letter here) Cameron’s dream is now a legacy far greater then she ever could have imagined.
