Homeless Track Stars

Homeless Track Stars

In this July 11, 2016 photo, Tonia Handy, 46, seated center, is surrounded by her children, Tai Sheppard, 11, Rainn Sheppard, 10, and Brooke Sheppard, 8, left to right, and flanked by coaches Karel Lancaster, left, and Jean Bell, right, after track workouts at Boys and Girls High School, in Brooklyn borough of New York. Every morning, the three young sisters wake up together with their mom in one bed in a Brooklyn homeless shelter. Every afternoon, they train in a sport that they hope will put them on a path to a better life. The girls have blossomed since taking up track and field just a year and a half ago, and earned top youth track rankings and a spot in this week’s Junior Olympics. (AP Photo/Richard Drew)
