The SpeakUp5k is an organization created to honor Cameron K. Gallagher. We raise money to fund organizations that were important to her. Those organizations promoted happiness, positive attitudes and ear-to-ear smiles. This year, our particular fund raising will benefit the Virginia Treatment Center for Children.
