Grace Mullis

Gracie -- I like this picture because it is a rock-star repping rock-stars. Forgive the terrible pun, but you left everyone who knew you absolutely "Thunderstruck". I would not trade the pain of you being gone for not having known you. You taught me more about life in your two years on this earth than I had learned on my own in 30 years. I'll see you soon. And I'll rock a little rock for you on the bike this year!

My Story

14 Jun 2021

I first participated in the Great Cycle Challenge in 2019, three months after the bravest girl I know kicked cancer's butt and left this world behind. I felt helpless and useless. While scrolling on Instagram one night, I saw info on GCC. I immediately signed up. Since then, I have biked 454 miles to find a cure. It has lead to a new and life-changing job at a local bike shop where I have found my people and started to thrive and flourish as a person and as a cyclist.

This year, I ride from a different space. I am so glad to have found the place and the people that make me feel alive. I am also reminded daily that every child deserves that same chance and so many of them don't get it because cancer steals them away from us. So this year, I ride for the children who should get to ride bikes, have sleepovers, and commit all sorts of general shenanigans!!! I will shenan in your honor and your memory, and I will make a way forward.
