I was good friends with Gabe Grunewald. Gabe was a professional runner that passed away from rare cancer. I am also a board member at Brave Like Gabe and we hope to continue on Gabe’s mission of raising awareness for rare cancer. Join us at the 7th Annual Brave Like Gabe 5K happening September 28th! This annual event supports rare cancer research – specifically Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, Gabe’s specific kind of cancer. You can register to run with us in St. Paul on September 28th or virtually from anywhere in the world! No excuses – everyone can join! Head on over to to register and to learn more about Gabe, the Brave Like Gabe 5K, or to help us in the fight against rare cancer.
