Going miles for Milla

In mid-May, Memphians took to their bikes and streets for the late Milla Gieselmann. The event, Miles 4 Milla’s House, brought out more than 400 people to raise money for the new Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief – Milla’s House, which will be located on the grounds of Idlewild Presbyterian Church in Midtown Memphis.

More than 70 cyclists biked the 40-mile ride, and more than 100 families and kids enjoyed the family ride. Even a few raindrops couldn’t damper the generous spirits.

Scheduled to open in late summer, The Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief –  Milla’s House is named in memory of Milla Gieselmann, the 6-year-old daughter of Memphis couple Frazer and Dana Gieselmann. In November 2016, Milla died from Batten disease, an inherited neurodegenerative disorder for which there is no cure.
