Doernbecher Freestyle: Stomp out cancer

Patient Stories

Nike and University of Oregon have teamed up with OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital to help defeat childhood cancer. The project is an expansion of Doernbecher Freestyle, a partnership between Nike and Doernbecher that has raised nearly $17 million for the hospital over the past 14 years.

On Sept. 9, the University of Oregon will hit the field in a uniform designed by three young cancer survivors. From the helmet to the cleats, every part tells a story. Oregon football coach Willie Taggart has said, “We will do everything in our power to play with the same tenacity exemplified by Sophia, Ethan and Joe, and wearing this uniform is a great chance to honor them and their spirit and efforts.”
