Makayla was born with Bilateral Hip Dysplasia, but we didn't know it until she was about 3 months old. After a few months of trying non-surgical treatments, it was determined that Makayla would need an Open Reduction to correct her right hip. She had her surgery at 7 months old and spent the next 3 months in a Spica cast (a cast that went from her chest to her ankles).
Makayla is now 4 years old and has had healthy hip checkups since her surgery. She enjoys running and playing like any other normal 4 year old and also loves her Gymnastics class!
This race is one that is near and dear to our hearts as it directly benefits the Hip Program at Boston Children's Hospital - a program which consists of some of the greatest hip dysplasia surgeons around (one of which who now feels more like family than Makayla's physician)!

About Hip Hop 5k/10k
The Hip Hop 5K/10K was started by hip dysplasia patient Emily Cioffi in 2013 in response to the need for better treatment and awareness of hip dysplasia for patients of all ages; newborns to adults. In the past 5 years it has grown to become a prominent town event in Easton, MA drawing in participants from all over the country. We pride ourselves on an organized registration system, timely start, and an excellent volunteer staff throughout the race course. The road race committee works hard year round to aid in promoting awareness and fundraising to assist Boston Children’s Hospital Orthopaedic Hip Program, and the IHDI in their research to develop better, more efficient methods of diagnosis, as well as less invasive forms of treatment to hopefully minimize the severe physical and mental repercussions of hip dysplasia. As we continue to grow, we hope you will join us to help us reach this years goal of 40,000 and over 600 participants!
