We lost Gabe Grunewald 4 years ago, but her legacy lives on in The Brave Like Gabe Foundation, and over the past 5 years they have been able to fund more than $1.3M in rare cancer research. That’s real science bringing hope to cancer survivors, and it’s exactly what Gabe had intended. One of the ways the Brave Like Gabe Foundation is able to make these grants is by hosting an annual 5K event that literally anyone, anywhere can join! Please consider registering for this event in September and using my discount code – CTOLLERUN23 – for a 10% discount. Your registration and donations support rare cancer research and keep cancer survivors #RunningOnHope.
