Gabriele “Gabe“ Grunewald founded the Brave Like Gabe foundation with the mission to: “Support rare cancer research and empower all cancer survivors through physical activity.” She is the epitome of optimism, perserverance, and of course, pure bravery. I have been awe inspired by her professional running career since I began running in 2011 and have continued to be inspired, humbled, and motivated ever since. With that being said, I am honored and empowered by the opportunity I have been so generously granted to run the New York City Marathon in November of 2020 for the Brave Like Gabe Foundation. The goal here is to follow Gabe’s mission and raise awareness and funding for rare cancer research through physical activity. I am seeking to raise $3,000.00 (or more) for the Brave Like Gabe foundation by race day. I know we can do this!
