OUR MISSION IS TO
Support rare cancer research and empower all cancer survivors through physical activity.
"Brave Like Gabe” started as a hashtag to support professional runner Gabriele “Gabe” Grunewald as she sought treatment for her third battle with an incurable rare salivary gland cancer in 2017.
The Brave Like Gabe Foundation was formed in 2018 as a way for Gabe to continue to share her story, connect with patients, and make a difference in the cancer community.
She has experienced firsthand many of the challenges faced by rare cancer patients and the need for dedicated research funding.
Gabe also credits running and physical activity during all phases of her survivorship for helping her get through her cancer journey. She is passionate about sharing that experience with others in similar situations.
That is how we arrived at our mission: to support rare cancer research and empower cancer survivors through physical activity.
