Gracie became involved with Special Olympics in 2015 as a Unified partner on the FC Dallas Special Olympics soccer team. In 2018, she began sideline reporting during Unified matches, eventually coming to serve on both the SO Texas and SO Kansas boards. She has been a proud supporter at SO Texas and SO Kansas events and her passion for inclusion shines through.

Special Olympics Champion Ambassadors engage with Special Olympics within a country, region, or state of recruitment and dedicate their time to specifically support one area of focus to help bring awareness to the important work of Special Olympics. Gracie is currently spearheading the Kansas City Chiefs Unified Challenge with big plans for where the inclusion revolution can go.
