This year marks the 25th anniversary of Grace’s tragic passing. The Grace Nolan Foundation has generously agreed to match the first $25,000 we raise on June 23rd! Your gift will be DOUBLED!

Visit our HHT Changemakers page today to hear Grace’s story, learn how you can get involved this June and to donate. Learn more >>
