Runnin’ Not Walken: Update #3
Just two items to update today:
- I’m happy to report that Ash Brokerage has committed again for the 3 consecutive year to support Runnin’ Not Walken at the Silver level of $500. This brings our total sponsorship dollars to $1750. We are well on our way to our sponsorship goal!
- On the donor side, we have a Matching May even set up where in the month of May, we have a very generous donor who has challenged us to raise at least $500 on May 1st. If we hit that, then everything else we raise in May, he will match. This is quite simply, the most exciting and large opportunity the team has ever had. There are more details to come but we’ll be working hard to make that a huge day!

Let’s do this! . #bravelikegabe #runnningonhope #runnersdoinggood . . Posted @withrepost • @bravelikegabe This is how many people @gigrunewald wants out being active on 6/25/19. Regarding a virtual option for Tuesday’s run: she and I hope we have people running with us all over the world Tuesday. You can make a number, you can tag #bravelikegabe or #runningonhope on social media. If you want to share your run you can create a @strava account and log your miles with a GPS watch or phone app. Moving forward, she wants you moving as frequently as you feel able. Whether you walk/jog/run/bike/swim. The online store will be filling back up soon and we will extend an international shipping option. I know Gabe is smiling down seeing everyone staying active and donating to rare cancer research. If you feel compelled you can donate one time or make a recurring donation at http://bravelikegabe.org/donate
Congratulations are in order! A sincere congrats on a job well done to @karlwilliams9919 on completing his ultramarathon challenge to benefit the @the_bhf ! ⠀ ⠀ What he did was pretty amazing and Runners Doing Good was fortunate to have Karl write an article telling us why he's did what he was doing. It's a wonderful story of running being a therapy for him and how it became a tool to use in memory of his father. I was blessed that he was willing to share it with you all.⠀ ⠀ If you'd like to learn more about this incredible effort to run 7 ultras over the last year or so, please visit runnersdoinggood.com in the bio. Read his story but most importantly, you can still donate! A link is provided there as well. ⠀ ⠀ Great job Karl!⠀ ⠀ #runningcommunity #runnersdoinggood #ultramarathons #ultras #running #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #run #ukrunchat #ukrunner #runners #igrunners #resilience #inspiration #motivation #promotethepositive
#NewBlogAlert - Back on the Right Path!⠀ ⠀ Been thinking a lot lately about Runners Doing Good and feeling like something was missing. I received a DM to the account the other day and after reading it, I went through some other messages and saw some of Gabe Grunewald and I's interaction and thought I'd share part of the screenshot. Since my name is Gabriel and go by Gabe and never encounter anyone with that name, I wasn't sure if she was a Gabby but spelled it like Gabe or what so I had to ask and since she was a runner and was one of the account's first followers, I had to tell her about it as well. She actually liked what I was doing with the account and it got me thinking...⠀ ⠀ If someone like her thought it was a good thing, I was on the right path. Life has gotten in the way a bit over the last couple months but coming across this was reminder I needed.⠀ ⠀ My promise is to get back to more features of runners like @karlwilliams9919, @dreaminofmysolider, and @matt.j.hearld , supporting them and the good they're accomplishments, and overall spreading the inspiration they're giving off. ⠀ ⠀ By the way I'm looking at you @thewannaberunner ...I've not forgotten about you Pete. I promise. Let's catch up soon!⠀ ⠀ Anyways, it's time to ramp this back up. Here's to more running goodness in the very near future.⠀ ⠀ #runnersdoinggood #inspiration #runningcommunity #rungooders #run #runners #running #thanksgabe #instadaily #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #moretocome #blogalert #newblog #follow #motivation #linkinbio
Amazing! Go to @chipgaines post to find the link! Let’s do this! . #runnersdoinggood ! . Posted @withrepost • @chipgaines More than 10 years ago, my friend @gigrunewald was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer. I understand that Gabe is not a patient at @StJude, but right now, she is fighting for her life. Cancer is ugly and it is mean and it doesn’t fight fair. This has gotten extremely personal.. so here’s what I’m going to do about it: I want us to hit that $500K mark by midnight tonight. So I will be personally matching all #ChipInChallenge donations made between now and midnight. ON TOP OF THAT, I'll also be matching that amount in the form of a donation to the #BraveLikeGabe Foundation, in Gabe's honor. That is 3x the power of your generosity in the fight against cancer.. and all YOU need to do is donate whatever you can to the #ChipInChallenge (link in bio) between now and midnight CT. I’ll take care of the rest. Together, we’re going to fight for those who are fighting for just one more day. This is for those precious kids at St. Jude.. we are pulling for you! And to my beautiful friend Gabe.. we love you and we are here for you every step of the way.
When I think about inspiration, @gigrunewald is where my mind goes. As I read her husband, @justingrunewald1 's instagram posts over the last week, I've thought more and more about her and how I first came across her. She was one of the first followers of the Runners Doing Good instagram page and for the small bit of interaction I had with her, I feel truly grateful. ⠀ ⠀ I honestly didn't know who she was so I had to do a little research on her before I reached out. I'm a Gabriel and go by Gabe and I rarely, if ever, come across anyone with the same name so I had to say hello. She was everything that I ever read or heard about her. She was positive and upbeat in every interaction despite the fight before her and even complimentary and encouraging about the concept of highlighting runners making a difference, yet she may have been the runner who's made the deepest impact of all.⠀ ⠀ For more than a decade, she showed us all that cancer wasn't going to slow her down. She would fight it and live her life while doing it. While it may ultimately take her life, she has truly done something incredible and lasting.⠀ ⠀ Through @bravelikegabe , she has brought rare cancers out of the shadows so that funding and research could get kick-started with the hope that better outcomes could be possible for others. Without her, that simply wouldn't have happened. ⠀ ⠀ The world is a better place because of people like her. May we all learn to live our life with that type of zeal and to make such a positive impact on those around us. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #bravelikegabe #runningonhope #cancersucks #prayers #grateful #inspiration #runnersdoinggood #linkinbio
