***Ride moved to Sunday, April 25 at 7:00 a.m. start for all mileages.  Begin and end at Procycle and Tri in Fairhope***


We hope you will join us, April 21- 24, 2021 to ride 400 miles in loving memory of our dear friend Grace Ragland. You can also register for the GRACIE SUNSHINE ride of 20, 50 or 100 miles.   Each 400 mile cyclist is asked to meet a goal of at least $1000 that will go to fund another year of research for The Tanner Foundation Scholar at The Civitan International Research Center at UAB in Multiple Sclerosis, Ashlyn Anderson.  We will cover the hotel rooms for the 400 riders the four nights (W/T/F/S nights), Jersey for ride, drinks/snacks during ride, meals during race days, reception Friday evening and celebration party Saturday evening(for the 400 mile riders only).  Volunteers will drive cyclist back to Birmingham Sunday for those that need rides.  Use your personal fundraising page to solicit donations and also use your social media platforms to help spread the word. Use hashtag #graceragland400 in all of your materials, social media, and photos to help us see all of the posts.   The logos are attached here that you can use if you would like.  Thanks so much for being a part of this great cause!  Please register by March 12 to make sure you receive the jersey. 

Not able to do 400 miles?  Try a RELAY team of 4 for $300, or ride 400 Virtually for $100!  We even have options for a 20, 50 or 100 mile ride on Saturday, April 24 in Fairhope.  So you can choose what works for you!  If doing the relay or Virtual 400, please try to raise $500 towards the scholar.   If doing the 20, 50 or 100 mile, please try to raise $100.  We will award a top fundraiser for each category! 

The Fairhope Store has 10-12 cruiser bikes to rent as well, if you are interested in renting a bike when you arrive in Fairhope for the 20 mile ride.  You must reserve a week in advance,and it's $30 for the rental. Call (251) 928-0108 to reserve.

 We also have a block of rooms at the Key West Inn in Fairhope, so if you would like a room, please email marytmiller@tannerfoundation.org as there is limited space.
