Our 2020 Beneficiaries


About the Twins Community Fund:

The Minnesota Twins Community Fund is a non-profit organization founded following the 1991 World Series to lead the ballclub’s charitable efforts.

We believe that youth sports – and specifically baseball and softball – change lives for the better. The game teaches players about teamwork, perseverance, patience, and even failure. Through sport, we are working to create not the next generation of great athletes, but the next generation of great human beings.

Our mission is to enrich local and regional communities by providing resources for the healthy development of children and families through an association with baseball, softball, and the Minnesota Twins.

Community Fund Emergency Relief and Response:

The COVID-19 pandemic, along with the damages sustained in recent weeks to communities in the Twin Cities area, has resulted in basic needs not being met for many of the children and families that we support through our baseball and softball programs. To that end, the Community Fund Board recently created an Emergency Relief Fund to support immediate relief efforts rooted in child and family hunger, shelter, and educational needs.




About Gabe Grunewald:
Pro runner. Rare cancer advocate. Relentless optimist.


"Brave Like Gabe” started as a hashtag to support professional runner Gabriele “Gabe” Grunewald as she sought treatment for her third battle with an incurable rare salivary gland cancer in 2017.

As a professional runner and rare cancer advocate, Gabe founded The Brave Like Gabe Foundation to share her story, inspire others to connect and do the same, and to make a difference in the cancer community.  

During her cancer journey, Gabe experienced firsthand many of the challenges faced by rare cancer patients and the need for dedicated research funding.
She also felt strongly that running and physical activity were like medicine during all phases of her cancer journey.

Gabe passed away in June 2019 and her legacy with the foundation continues to inspire others to share their own struggles while also helping to find better more effective treatments for rare cancer.  

We run on hope. We run for research. We are not giving up. #BraveLikeGabe.
