Each year, the program allows six OHSU Doernbecher patients to create inspiring Nike footwear, apparel, and equipment designs that are auctioned and sold to benefit the hospital as a signature fundraiser. Created with a team of Nike product experts, who are each volunteering their time and expertise, each patient’s collection items are adorned with intricate details, hidden messages, and unexpected color palettes to represent their individual passions, life experiences, medical journeys, and relationships.

Doernbecher Freestyle is important to the culture of both Nike and OHSU Doernbecher, allowing doctors, nurses, hospital employees, sneaker and apparel designers and developers, and community members alike to come together to make a difference in the lives of Doernbecher Freestyle patient-designers, their families, and the hospital community. One hundred percent of the profits from retail sales of the Doernbecher Freestyle program are donated to the Oregon Health Sciences University Foundation (OHSUF), benefiting Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

The Doernbecher Freestyle XIX Collection features six silhouettes from six amazing Doernbecher patient designers: an Air Jordan III, a Nike Dunk High, a Nike Go FlyEase, a Nike ACG Mountain Fly 2 Low, a Nike Cortez, and a Nike Air Max 1 ’86. The silhouettes will release in December.

Hugo-Covarrubias-Molina-Air-Jordan-3-Doernbecher

Hugo “Juice” Covarrubias Molina was born with a rare disorder that causes one side of his body to grow larger than the other. He used to feel self-conscious about it, but Hugo has learned to embrace his uniqueness and designed a shoe that encourages others to do the same. His style is represented on the shoe with his nickname, “Juice” (“Jugo” in Spanish), and a cool drip design over the upper. On the outsole, you’ll find his words to live by: It’s OK to be different.
