The funeral for Minnesota championship runner Gabriele Grunewald, who died at the age of 32 Tuesday following a battle with cancer, has been scheduled for Monday.
Grunewald's husband, Justin, posted the details on Instagram Thursday. Visitations are scheduled from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday and 10 a.m. to noon Monday at the Washburn-McReavy Hillside Chapel, located at 2600 19th Avenue NE in Minneapolis.
The funeral will follow from noon to 1:30 p.m. Monday.
The 32-year-old distance runner was diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma — a rare form of cancer in the saliva glands — in 2009 while running for the University of Minnesota's track and cross country teams. Following surgery and radiation therapy, she went on to finish second in the 1,500 meters at the 2010 NCAA championships.
She then ran professionally through 2017 despite more surgeries and treatments for cancer in her thyroid and liver. She was the 2014 U.S. indoor champion in the 3,000 meters.
