Brave Like Gabe Virtual 5K Race Packs May 18, 2018

Dear Brave Like Gabe Virtual 5Kers,

Good news: your virtual race kits are on their way! With your help we were able to reach and surpass our goal of 1224 total runners. Thank you!

All kits were shipped earlier this week, so be on the lookout within the next week for your Brave Like Gabe Virtual 5K race pack, which will include a shirt, a custom race bib, and instructions on how to participate.

Our goal is for the Virtual 5K to kick off on May 20th and run through June 3rd, which is National Cancer Survivors Day. Should you have a race planned this weekend and your kit has not arrived by that point, please feel free to do so without your kit and still let us know how it goes! 

Here is a special podcast recorded with Carrie Tollefson specifically for Virtual 5K participants: http://www.ctollerun.com/gabriele-grunewald-3/

Admittedly, we would have loved to have gotten your kits to you sooner but we were so overcome with the support for the event (a good thing!) that it put a few logistical delays into our fulfillment as we accommodated as many runners as possible. (Note: a small number of participants will receive their preferred shirt size at a later date.) All things considered, we could not be happier with the turnout and support from you!

Thank you so much for supporting Brave Like Gabe in our very first few months of existence. Our team is so excited for what the future holds for our organization and especially for the contribution to rare cancer research we are able to make this year because of you!

With gratitude,

Gabriele Grunewald
