We are excited to share the video of our 3rd Annual Day of Movement! This year we sold over 430 shirts, and raised over $6400 this year for a total of over $20,000 since we began Miles4Hips in support of the International Hip Dysplasia Institute!
Carley’s son had open reduction surgery at 6 months old. She shares her top items to bring to the hospital for surgery, top items to have at home after surgery and my favorite things we used to get through this tough time!
“When I learned about Miles4Hips through a Facebook group, I knew I wanted to help and participate in any way that I could. I reached out and I decided to share a little of our story and some lists of the items we thought worked best for us!”
Hip dysplasia is a general term for infantile hip instability, dislocation, or shallowness of the hip socket. Hip instability and dislocation are more likely to occur during infancy, while a shallow stable socket is more often discovered in adolescence or adulthood.
Lauren shares her inspiring story of overcoming adversity, starting as a tiny baby in the NICU, and continuing through childhood and teenage years filled with orthopedic surgeries. Lauren is in college and dreams of serving others by becoming an orthopedic surgeon.
Go for a hike, go for a run, push a stroller, roll in a wheelchair, do some yoga, get on a bike, have a dance party, hit up the playground, do some gardening, or just do some glute sets. Move on your own, get family and friends to join, or organize a local meet-up. Every movement counts!
Make sure to take plenty of pictures and email them to us (email@example.com) or tag us on social media #m4hdayofmovement for our annual post-event video!
