Our Story

The Trinity Gay Foundation was established in honor of our beloved and deceased Trinity Gay, whom was fatally shot and killed in the crossfire of a gun fight October 16, 2016. She was born December 12, 2000 to the parents of Shoshana Boyd and Olympian Tyson Gay. Trinity was caring and compassionate with an infectious smile and exuberant attitude. Her love for competition began at age 5 when she began competitive cheerleading. At age 14, her cheer team competed in the world championships in Los Angeles, CA and were featured in the movie, “Champions League.” Trinity excelled at track and field and was a rising star who began competing at the local, state, and national levels in the 6th grade. Her achievements include 100m and 200m titles, as well as various records held at Lafayette High School. With aspirations of becoming a plastic surgeon, she maintained straight A's (with a 4.0 GPA) throughout her academic career. Trinity’s biggest goals were to follow in her father's footsteps by becoming an Olympian competitor and winning a Gold metal for her father.
