Hello Friends and Family:
Denny Gallagher and the Gallagher are good friends of mine. Denny's niece is Cameron Gallagher. If you haven't heard her story please take a moment to read it here. http://speakup5k.com/camerons-story/ Cameron struggled with mental illness in her short lifetime but had great plans to try and help other teens overcome their own mental issues. Here's an excerpt from her story that summarizes:
>>>> After she died, Grace and I found the complete plans for the race, the sponsorship request, even the speeches she would give. (See Cameron’s sponsorship request letter here) Cameron wanted to “speak up” for positive causes and challenge people to “be nice.” She created a mission to support different causes each year that met the vision of the speakup5K. The race would become an inspiration to people to become better athletes, husbands, wives, siblings, friends or community members. She wanted people to speak up and help others in need. We had no idea that she had been working on this. She had prepared her life for her legacy and she completed her race. It’s fitting that her final moment was the completion of a life goal and a smile. Are you finishing your race?
