BENEFITING: The Cameron K Gallagher Foundation
EVENT: Speak Up Germany 2016
EVENT DATE: Jul 17, 2016
Give me these two minutes. Two minutes, and I’ll tell you that I went through a period of tremendous anxiety, so bad I didn’t know if I’d pull through. Turns out this happens to hundreds, thousands, millions of people every day. Did I know that at the time? No. Would it have helped if I did? YES.
Cameron Gallagher’s mission is to educate people on the impacts of anxiety and depression, both factually and practically. Families and individuals should know about it, know how to handle it and know that there’s hope.
We all have our ups and downs. But I’m making it my mission to make real change – this foundation gets into middle and high schools and teaches about anxiety and depression and uses their powers to connect with individuals to practice acceptance and kindness. Your donation can help facilitate a class, sponsor treatment, or help provide kind messages to someone in need.
This is more than a race. This is an opportunity to tell kids (mine, soon) that it’s ok to not feel normal. It’s ok to be different. It happens to a lot of people and if you see a friend going through it, be there. If you go through it, talk about it. Be present, it can change a life.
