“Atlanta wouldn’t be here without Grady. For 125 years, the hospital has helped save lives, train the next generation of doctors and conducted cutting-edge research that impacts patient care globally,” said Overstreet. “I’m proud to raise money for this iconic Atlanta institution that provides unparalleled treatment to Atlantans.”

VeloCity 2019 features both indoor and outdoor cycling rides of multiple distances, from 5.8 to 100-mile rides. Overstreet will be a guest instructor for the 1 p.m. ‘Divas with Power’ indoor cycling ride on May 4.
