Brave Like Gabe
Brave Like Gabe was founded by professional runner Gabriele “Gabe” Grunewald as she sought treatment for her third battle with an incurable rare salivary gland cancer in 2017. Gabriele continued to compete at the highest level despite ongoing treatments and setbacks. She strongly believed in finding out what was possible despite her diagnosis and encouraged other cancer survivors to keep their minds open to the possibility of achieving their dreams and other goals by being brave in their own way.
After living for 10 years with adenoid cystic carcinoma, Gabriele passed away on June 11, 2019.
Brave Like Gabe’s mission is to support rare cancer research and empower all cancer survivors through physical activity.
