Maymont is on the race route this year for The Dominion Payroll SpeakUp5k presented by Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. Sign up for the event to experience the fun and family-friendly course for yourself, or cheer on participants as they run through the historic entrance and circle Maymont Mansion. Visit us at the post-race party at the Byrd Park Vita Trail, too!
The SpeakUp5k is an event that brings the entire community together to raise awareness and understanding of teen depression and anxiety. Designed by 16-year-old Cameron Gallagher, the race is full of fun and excitement, including fun zones and cheer zones to keep you motivated. Funds from the race support local programs to help erase the stigma tied to mental illness and encourage people to “SpeakUp.” Visit the CKG Foundation website to register or to learn more about Cameron’s story and the CKG Foundation.
