Meet Team Ryan!

Meet Team Ryan 2021, and join them in supporting the International Hip Dysplasia Institute for our Day of Movement!  Read Ryan’s journey with hip dysplasia that began with knee pain shortly before her 3rd birthday.

“The Day of Movement on 10/9/21 will be a day for us to celebrate her journey, with all the bad and good that has come from it. We hope people use this day to celebrate their mobility, whatever that looks like for them. We hope this day can bring awareness and funding to a cause that is still not well understood.”
