World Clubfoot Day 2017


This year was The Clubfoot Store's first World Clubfoot Day! We were so excited for World Clubfoot Day we started fundraising back in February with the sale of our World Clubfoot Day merchandise. All proceeds from the sale of our items went to MiracleFeet! We are happy to announce that we raise $158.00 to donate! Our goal for next year is to fund one child's entire Clubfoot treatment. World Clubfoot Day items are available year round and proceeds will always be donated to a Clubfoot Charity that enhances the lives of children born with Clubfeet.

In addition to our fundraising efforts, if you are our follower on Facebook you were invited to our first World Clubfoot Day virtual party! We had lots of fun with prizes every hour! We even had 26th Avenue Bar Covers and Baby Bumble Bee Shop join in on the fun. Please be sure to follow our all our shops for great ideas, products and clubfoot friendly items.

Finally the World Clubfoot Day celebrations didn't end with us! People around the World celebrated in different ways:

Brady from Australia

Brady is a 9 year old boy/young man, who was born with bilateral clubfeet. Brady's journey with clubfeet was going well until he turned 3 and ended up with osteomyelitis (bone infection) of the talus. He was in hospital for 5 weeks and then had surgery to clean out the bone. At that point Brady was unable to wear his boots and bar and his clubfoot journey turned into another test of character. Brady had to endure a number of surgeries but, he has made it a positive one by focusing on his strengths.

Brady's mother, Leigh, does not want to scare other people who's children have clubfeet as clubfoot contracting osteomyelitis is highly unlikely due to clubfeet and this is Brady's journey,  could not be a typical journey for an extraordinary kid.

For World Clubfoot Day. Brady sold #ClubfootWarrior wrist bands and donate the proceeds to Miracle Feet.

(If you would like to purchase one you can do so by emailing clubfootwarrior@gmail.com)

In addition to his wristband sales, for World Clubfoot Day this year (as he has the last 3 years) he organized a basketball double header game . The proceeds of the it went to Miraclefeet. This year he raised $4520!

Finally this amazing young is a classified Para athlete now and hopes to make the Paralympics one day. He is currently doing cross country and it looks like he will make the State team. Nothing slows this kid down!

Lucia & Nathan from the UK

Lucia is 10 years old and her brother Nathan is 6 months. For World Clubfoot Day this year, she baked cakes and we had friends and family over to their house and they paid to have cake and tea/coffee. She wanted to let everyone know that Nathan is doing really well with his clubfoot journey but she also wanted to raise money to help families who need a bit of extra support. It was all her own idea and her parents are amazed with how much money she raised.

     

 

Bec in Austrailia

Bec and her family hosted a party in Australia to celebrate World Clubfoot Day. Everyone had their own shirts to celebrate and showed support for her gorgeous little guy born with Clubfeet.
