The Brave Like Gabe 5k road race comes to St. Paul this May, the first event hosted by the newly established Brave Like Gabe Foundation. Local professional runner and cancer survivor Gabriele "Gabe" Grunewald's goal is to increase research funding and awareness for rare cancers, as well as empower cancer survivors through physical activity.
In this introductory event, the Brave Like Gabe 5k proceeds will benefit the Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation, a patient-founded organization for the rare salivary gland cancer that Gabe has been living with for nearly ten years. The ACCRF’s work -- to accelerate the development of improved therapies and a cure for the disease -- has given Gabe the hope required for her to courageously train and race through her struggles with this rare cancer.
And now it's time for Gabe and her supporters to share their gratitude for the progress made by the ACCRF through this race and its proceeds. The Brave Like Gabe 5k race seeks to increase awareness for ACC and all rare cancers as well as generate funds for the ACCRF's continued research advances. We are thrilled to bring patients, survivors, supporters, and the Minnesota running community together for a run fueled by hope.
All paid participants will receive a free premium cotton t-shirt commemorating the inaugural running of this race. Brave Like Gabe 5k will also feature a kids run, running and fitness related resource tables, lawn yoga, coffee, donuts, special tributes, and more!
