Hi everyone, my name is Tonia Handy. I am raising money for my daughters Tai, Rainn and Brooke Sheppard for the 2017 track season. The girls and I are grateful for the contributions and support. The 2016 Nationals in Houston was phenomenal and the girls were very successful! Tai and Rainn won gold medals in the 80m Hurdles and the 3000m, and Brooke got a silver in the High Jump. They also got medals in the other events they competed in, turning in new personal best times and heights. Because of the many requests coming in, I am starting early this season with my campaign. I am asking for donations which will include new uniforms, club fees and travel expenses for all of the National meets they qualify for in 2017 . For the girls travel expenses, this will include airline, hotel, and food for the duration of their stay. New Uniforms will be ordered which includes Tee shirts long and short, running shorts and shirts, hoodies, and sweatsuits. Club fees are due entering the 2017 track season. Your contributions and continued support means a great deal to us. This is a great way to keep the girls in the sport that they love as well as securing a bright future in track and field! God Bless.

I am a United States 4- time Olympian and the American Record Holder in the high jump. Brook is obviously doing great without me, but please let me know if your would like advice on training or technique. I was homeless with my mom, and ended up getting separated from her and my sisters when my grandmother took me in. Track provided me with hope, allowed me to graduate from college and provide for my family.
