To celebrate the 12th year of the Nike and OHSU Doernbecher Freestyle program, and kickoff a countdown to the 2015 retail release on November 21, Nike is donating a dozen exclusive Jordan XIIs to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Designed by Mark Smith, each of the one-of-a-kind sneakers features Smith’s personal application of original Tinker Hatfield sketches. Each one-of-one will be presented in a box printed with Tinker’s initial design elements, and individually autographed by both Mark and Tinker.

About Doernbecher Freestyle

Funds support various aspects of hospital practices including clinical programs and hospital construction to providing care for uninsured children.
About Nike Community Impact
Nike believes in the power of sport to move the world and unleash human potential. However, the world is moving less and less, and today's generation of children is the least physically active ever. That’s why Nike works to get kids (ages 7-12) active early and for life, because active kids are happier, healthier and more successful. Together with its employees, partners, consumers and athletes, Nike also supports important causes that strengthen communities across the globe. Learn more.
