Gabriele Grunewald Documentary Screenings

To be resilient, graceful, humble, full of grit, tough as hell, and still stop to smell the roses, is to be brave like Gabe.

Those qualities and our love for Gabe made us want to show our support and showcase her bravery through a documentary called “GABE” that chronicles her journey while battling cancer for the fourth time.

We’re sharing the documentary with the world later this month, but first, we’re partnering with several local running stores to host video screenings in cities across the U.S.

Fleet Feet Sports- Huntsville

To show our support for Gabe and help her with medical expenses, we’ve created a special Brave Like Gabe T-shirt which will be provided at the screening events for a $25 donation to Gabe’s AthleteBiz page. Brooks will match all T-shirt donations and proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society to show our support for those who’ve been personally impacted by this disease.

The screenings will give local running communities the chance to come together to support Gabe and learn more about her journey. See the teaser for “GABE” below.

Don’t live in one of the screening cities? We’re sharing the full “GABE” documentary online later this month. Stay tuned.

    Derek, thanks for keeping us posted! What a truly amazing athlete she is. I cannot wait to see this documentary. More importantly, I cannot wait to share it with my daughters. Go, Gabe! And Justin is not to be forgotten as one amazing life partner, either. Wow. What a pair.
