My History with Hip Dysplasia


On August 27, 1997 I came home from my first day of high school, put on my running shoes, and ran out the door.  I came home with a sense of pride and power that I had never felt before. So, the next day I came home from school and put on my running shoes and ran out the door again.  And again.  And again.

I was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and thought I’d never run again. Now, I use this journey to raise awareness about hip dysplasia and to support the International Hip Dysplasia Institute in their mission to promote education, research, and innovation.

I invite you to support me and this organization by joining in this effort. 

Together, we can make great things happen!
