Join us in st. Paul or virtually
The 2nd Annual Brave Like Gabe 5k
We hope you’ll join us for the second running of the Brave Like Gabe 5k! 100% of funds received through registration from the Brave Like Gabe Virtual and St. Paul 5K will go toward funding a rare cancer research grant. Last year’s inaugural event raised $59,025 for life-saving cancer research through a grant made to the Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation. With your help, we hope to make a similar impact this year! We will be running on hope in St. Paul, MN on Sunday, May 5th but we are so appreciative of our virtual participants all around the US and world.
In 2018 we successfully completed the ‘1224 Campaign’ — and we are bringing it back again in 2019. On average there are 1224 new ACC diagnoses in the US each year. In 2009, Gabe was one of the 1224. This year, there will be a whole new group of patients starting to navigate this serious disease. We hope to show — again — how powerful a group of 1224 can be as we run or walk in support of each new diagnosis and fund a research grant that will brighten the future for these patients and their families.
Last year our races combined accommodated about ~1500 runners and we are aiming for a similar number this year! You can follow our progress below and on social media.

The Brave Like Gabe Foundation believes it takes bravery to make a positive difference in the world, as well as a strong community.
And with you on our team, we can all be Brave Like Gabe and help make a difference in the lives of these patients and their loved ones.
The in-person Brave Like Gabe 5K is taking place in St. Paul, MN on May 5, but for those who want to join the cause and participate from afar, you can be part of the action through our Virtual 5K. Once signed-up, your race kit will be mailed to you in May and you will receive instructions for how to run from anywhere in the world. Walkers are always welcome, too!
