The Dominion Payroll SpeakUp5k presented by Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU is a race designed by Cameron Gallagher to raise awareness of teenage depression and anxiety in a positive and active way. This race series serves as a primary vehicle to drive the SpeakUp message into the community.

The race is held at Byrd Park. It is a FUN race meant for everyone, with plenty of on-course surprises.  Cameron designed this race to be a fun, family-friendly event for all to enjoy. As we approach the sixth year of Cameron’s signature event in Richmond, we plan to add even more excitement and fun to both the course and the post-race party. Whether you walk, jog, or run, we want you to join us as we end the stigma of mental illness. 

The run starts and finishes on the Vita Trail in Byrd Park just across from the Carillon. While the course is almost entirely flat, it is anything but boring! There are fun surprises along the way that will be sure to put a smile on your face. After all, it was designed by a vibrant 16-year-old! Strollers and wheelchairs are welcome!
