Shana's Jump and Run
annual youth track event
Our beloved (Molly) Shana Thomas Barr lived a full and active life. Her vibrant personality, beauty and gentle spirit enriched the lives of everyone around her.
This annual Jump & Run track and field event honors her memory since passing away from cancer in July 2010.
Growing up in Springfield Oregon, Shana excelled in athletics and academics at Springfield High School (SHS), where she was homecoming queen, a record holding athlete and an honor roll student. Her triple jump record still stands, 37'11-1/4".
After graduating in 1993, Shana attended Central Michigan University on a full athletic track scholarship, studied sign language and meet her husband Cameron Barr. Together they raised two beautiful daughters, Alexis and Natalie.
100% of the proceeds benefit the Shana Thomas Barr Memorial Fund, a scholarship for Springfield High School track athletes.
Come join us in for a fun evening that will keep the dream of track & field alive for some well deserving SHS Athletes.
Bright colors and mismatched shoes are encouraged.
Bring a picnic dinner to enjoy after the event!
