Authorities have identified the runner who collapsed after completing a half-marathon in Virginia Beach Sunday and later died as 16 year-old Douglas Freeman High School student Cameron Gallagher.
Gallagher recently transferred to Freeman from St. Gertrude, where she was on the swimming and softball teams. Gallagher had just finished swimming with the Freeman Club Swimming team, which enjoyed its inaugural season in 2013-14.
Gallagher was also part of an organizing effort to create a special 5K run to raise awareness on the subject of suicide prevention.
It's called the "Speaking Up 5K", and remaining organizers wish to hold the event in Cameron's memory.

HCS Media Network offers our deepest condolences to Cameron's family, her friends, and the families of Douglas Freeman at St. Gertrude.
