Grace Gallagher, the executive director of the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation, received the award in 2016.

The foundation is named after her daughter who suffered a heart attack and died after finishing a half marathon back in 2014.

The mission of the foundation is to help teenagers who are battling depression, which Grace said that Cameron had dealt with prior to her death.
