Welcome to Team Brave Like Gabe for the 2020 Los Angeles Marathon!
Like to millions of runners and non-runners world wide, Gabe Grunewald has been and continues to be a massive influence in my life through her courageous journey as a runner fighting cancer to her very end in June 2019.
Cancer did not defeat Gabe...it only made her stronger.
As a recent liver cancer survivor myself, I have drawn inspiration from Gabe's grace and wisdom to keep going despite my own health challenges and to try and inspire others to not give up on their own goals and dreams.
If you're not familiar with Gabe's story, please take a few minutes to watch this tribute by NBC Sports capturing Gabe's journey.
The Brave Like Gabe Foundation was founded by Gabe with the mission to support rare cancer research and empower all cancer survivors through physical activity. Your small yet impactful donation will go directly to Brave Like Gabe and provide funding to raise awareness and support research for rare cancers.
On March 8, 2020 our team will run with Gabe's spirit in our hearts and her strength in our legs. We will fly through the streets of LA to let the world know what it is to be Brave Like Gabe! 💙
Our Team of Brave Runners...and growing!
