All proceeds from this race are being donated to the Grace Sheer Scholarship Fund.

Grace was passionate about and completely dedicated to soccer, having played since she was a small child. In high school, Grace was also a member of the Chamber Singers, the Interact Club, and the National Spanish Honors Society, and she planned on attending Kennesaw State University for college. Grace loved art, music and animals, especially her dog, Finn. Most importantly, though, Grace was a kind soul. Her positive attitude and kind words could make any of her classmates' day a little brighter. Additionally, Grace was fiercely loyal to and unquestionably loved her family and friends. Each and every day that Grace was with us, she demonstrated the true meaning of good character.
