On Saturday, August 25th, my daughter and I will hold our Annual Hip Hop 5K/10K run and 2 mile walk at the Oliver Ames High School. We are in the final stretch of preparations for our 6th annual run. Our goal is to raise over $40,000 for hip dysplasia research at the Boston Children's Hospital Hip Program. My team, “It All Adds Up!”, needs your help in reaching our team goal of $5,000.

Emily began the first Hip Hop 5k in 2013 and with your help we have raised close to $100,000. Emily was diagnosed with hip dysplasia as a teenager and went through over 10 surgeries since 2009 to reconstruct her hips. She has worked with experts at Lahey Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, and Mayo Clinic in Minnesota as well as consulting top orthopedic specialists around the world. One hip was successfully reconstructed, but the other had complications and she lost the use of her left leg. She is still unable to walk without the aid of crutches. She has taken this in stride and has become active in several adaptive programs, currently a Board member of Vermont Adaptive that teaches others to ski, cycle and hike despite the loss of normal functionality.

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!
