Pro runner and Minnesota native Gabriele Grunewald will be laid to rest in Minneapolis on Monday afternoon.

Gabriele, better known as 'Gabe' died this month after multiple battles with cancer at the age of 32.

Grunewald was known for her bravery and optimism. She grew up in Perham, Minn. and was a state high school  running champ. She went onto run for the University of Minnesota, winning several Big-10 championships with the team and was named an All-American, before turning pro in 2010.

Gabe kept running despite being diagnosed with cancer four times during her running career. She narrowly missed out on the 2012 Olympics, missing the team by just one spot.

She narrowly missed out on the Olympics again in 2016.

While carving out her career and fighting for survival Grunewald created the "Brave Like Gabe" foundation to raise money for rare cancer research and grow the sport of running.

Monday's funeral will be held at the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis at Noon.

A visitation will be held prior starting at 10:00 a.m. There will be a procession to Hillside Cemetery at 2600 19th Avenue NE in Minneapolis. In a fitting tribute, after Gabe is laid to rest a one mile walk/run will be held in her honor.
