While we won't physically be together in Omaha this summer, we'd like to invite members of the OI community to come together virtually for an Unbreakable Spirit® Walk-n-Wheel!
Plan on joining your fellow OI friends and family for this fun way to spread awareness and raise money for the OI Foundation.
Register today as an individual or create a team!
You can set your own fundraising goal, invite friends and family to join your team and most importantly, you can personalize your page with your OI story and a picture of yourself.
Share your page on social media and send out emails to all your family and friends to invite them to support you with a donation or join your team. We've written a few emails to get you started, but your friends and family want to hear from you so we encourage you to personalize your emails as well. Be sure to share your personalized page often!
Come together virtually on Friday, July 10th from 7:00-8:00pm eastern time. Wear a blue shirt or your favorite OIF gear, make a sign with your team name and walk or wheel around your neighborhood to help spread awareness for osteogenesis imperfecta. Don't forget to take photos and videos to share with the OI Foundation and on social media.
Meet your Walk-n-Wheel Co-Chairs!
"At the 2018 walk-n-wheel, we had a ball getting to parade down the street, and celebrate at the end with our OI family, medical professionals and friends! I distinctly remember Harper and Carter Brown chanting, “We have OI, we’re proud, and we’re not afraid to show it!” holding up their team name posters by the Baltimore Aquarium. Jennifer Brown (Carter’s mom) and I looked at each other with huge smiles on our faces when we saw that! It was just a special and proud moment to see our kiddos enjoying this effort and celebrating who they are. I encourage you and your family to take part in the next one in Omaha."

"As a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon and the director of the OI clinic at Children's Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska, I am very excited to have the OI community coming to Omaha in July 2020 for the biennial National Conference and to be one of your co-chairs for the 2020 OIF National Unbreakable Spirit® Walk-n-Wheel! When I participated in the Medics on the March fundraiser, friends and family were more than willing to donate to help me reach my fundraising goals once they knew how big of a role OI played in my life. I am honored to care for children with OI and excited to be a part of this event to raise awareness and funds for the OI foundation! See you in Omaha!"
