Brave Like Gabe Collection

Supporting Rare Cancer Research

In June 2022, Brooks Running released a special edition apparel collection to honor runner Gabriele “Gabe” Grunewald, who died of adenoid cystic carcinoma — a rare cancer — in 2019. The collection was designed in partnership with Grunewald’s family and friends, and is symbolic of her spirit and legacy. 

In support of rare cancer research, Brooks will donate $100,000 to Fred Hutch this year on behalf of the Brave Like Gabe Foundation for the Brave Fellowship that launched in 2020.

You can purchase the items from the Brave Like Gabe collection on Brooks’ website and learn more about the Brave Like Gabe Foundation

The Hutch could not be more proud to be affiliated with Brooks Running. It's a tremendous company. What they're doing is extraordinary. Fitness and the health benefits from exercise are key in helping to prevent cancer — all the way from when we are kids and throughout our lives.
