Kelli's UniversityGames Taipei Trip

Hello all! For those who don’t know me my name is Kelli Hardnett and I am a track and field athlete training in Houston, Tx.  
I have been running track for almost 10 years and  I moved to Houston to run collegiately at the University of Houston for the last 4 years.  

I ended my college career with a great senior year, setting personal records in all of my events, and have now transitioned into running post-collegiately, training with an impressive group of Olympians, US champions, and world champions all under the guidance of the head coach from the 2016 Bahamian Olympic Team. 

I am extremely happy to be able to say that I’ve been given the privilege and opportunity to represent Team USA at an international track meet, the World University Games, in Taipei, Taiwan this August. The World University Games are an international Olympic Games style competition. To be invited to compete in this meet is an amazing opportunity for me to travel overseas and represent the USA! There would be no better way to end my college career than with a gold medal from this amazing meet! Unfortunately I can’t fund this trip on my own so I’m asking for your help!
 Team USA will be leaving Houston August 17, in 3 weeks and competition will be in Taipei August 23 to the 28. I need to raise $1200 before I leave to finish paying for the trip so please if you can help by donating and spreading the word I would be so grateful!!

Thank you so much for all the support!!
Kelli Hardnett
