On her mini profile for the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle Project, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia patient Warang McManus poignantly stated that her prized possession was “the life she was given back”. An even more affecting statement is found on the sea turtle-shaped tag on McManus’ Nike WMN Skinny Dunk Hi. On it, a personalized remark that “You never know how strong you are until being strong is all you have left.” A stark reminder of what children with debilitating disease have to go through on a daily basis.
As with the previous 5 designs, Warang McManus’ Nike WMN Skinny Dunk Hi will be available as part of the 2011 Nike Doernbecher Freestyle Collection on November 5th, 2011. Priced at $82 for adult sizing and $70 for youth, all proceeds will go to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and its treatment programs for life threatening diseases.
