Shelby Lee first participated in the Doernbecher Freestyle program in 2010 while recovering from a series of five heart surgeries. Her recovery began in 2008, after her adoptive family brought her to Oregon from a Chinese orphanage to repair her damaged heart.
Shelby’s inspiration for her Nike Free Run 2 came from her amazing journey. The bright blue colors on the upper remind her of the sky, while inspirational words like “Love,” “Peace” and “Faith” line the midsole. The hearts on the tongue complete her journey. “When I came here my heart was broken,” says Shelby, “but the doctors at Doernbecher made it whole again.”
