Portland, November 7th, 2014. Over 600 guests joined Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation at the Portland Art Museum for the Doernbecher Freestyle . Michael Doherty, Nike’s Sr. Creative Director of Global Brand Presentations and Doernbecher Foundation Board Member, poses with Jim and Cathy Rudd, and Doernbecher patient and 2014 Freestyle designer Missy Miller. The program is a collaboration between Nike and OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital that each year empowers Doernbecher patients to become more than their illness through designing their own limited edition Nike collection.

Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception and 3-D vignette uniquely inspired by each designer before heading upstairs for the unveiling of the 2014 Doernbecher Freestyle Collection. After each of this year’s six young designers took the stage, their unique shoe and apparel lines were auctioned off to the highest bidder. This year marked the 11th anniversary of this ground-breaking partnership that has raised $11 million for the hospital. This year’s event raised $3.1 million including the $2.7 million gift Nike presented Doernbecher that night from the sales of the 2013 Doernbecher Freestyle Collection.
