Nike and the Oregon Health & Science University have unveiled the 2012 Doernbecher Freestyle Collection. The unique collaboration empowers patients through design to benefit the hospital.
The ninth annual Doernbecher Freestyle project partners Nike designers and developers with OHSU patients who have battled serious illness to create unique footwear. Kids decide the colors, materials and details for each shoe to reflect their individual stories and personalities.
Limited Edition Doernbecher Collection shoes will be sold at nike.com and at Nike retail locations across the country beginning Friday, November 30 with all proceeds from sales of the shoes benefitting OHSU Doernbecher. To date, the program has raised more than $4 million.
