Gabe Grunewald is an elite athlete who is fighting demons that most of us never have to view. In her fourth bout of cancer, Gabe just finished chemotherapy, and will be racing on Thursday, June 22, in the 1,500 meter heats at the USATF Outdoor Championships.
This is just a bit of a teaser on the documentary film that will be coming out next week.

I have watched Gabby Grunewald race for several years now. I have always been moved by her poise, sense of humor and her absolute fighting spirit. A tough Midwesterner, Gabby Grunewald has fought more demons (and the name of that demon is cancer) than most of us will see in our lives.
Running gives her life and life is her running. She breathes in, breathes out, and fights to the finish. No quarter given, none asked.
We will watch her race on Thursday evening in Sacramento. Gabby Grunewald lives by example. Her battles make our daily bits of frustration seem insignificant.
