Central Point Youth Unveils Nike Styles for Hospital Fund

9-year-old Aiden Barber of Central Point has been a patient of OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital . . . but now his original Nike designs are being used to raise money for the care of other young patients.

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — In June, OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital announced that 9-year-old Aiden Barber of Central Point would be one of six young patients chosen to create their own Nike designs in order to raise money for the care of other children. Now, Barber is back home after unveiling his unique creation.

Barber's gilded camouflage-print kicks were styled in honor of his cousin Michael, who serves in the U.S. Army. At the 15th annual Nike Freestyle gala, Barber's Nike Air Max 270 shoes were auctioned for $40,000.

"His camouflage design features an image of his brain, as well as the initials 'A.B,' which he shares with big sister Abigail, who is exactly one year older (they also share the same birth date!)," OHSU said.

Barber lives with brain vascular malformation, a collection of abnormal or tangled blood vessels in the brain that can affect blood flow or grow and cause other serious symptoms.

The hospital says that this year's Freestyle program pushed them over the $20 million-mark for money raised to benefit the care of child patients.

NewsWatch 12 will have more with Barber and his family tonight in our evening broadcasts.
