Maddy's Marching Hipster's Fundraising Page
Over the last year Hip Dysplasia has been a part of our life. Before Maddy's diagnosis I wasn't even really aware of what it was. Maddy has been through so much and her resilience through it all is truly amazing. We have been fortunate enough to have the best doctors and live so close to the #1 Children's Orthopedic Hospital in the country, Boston Children's Hospital. The care she has received the the support that they offer to families is amazing.
We are trying to raise awareness of what Hip Dysplasia is. Make every new parent aware of it, what to look for, what are the contributing factors that could make your child more at risk. Early intervention can make a huge difference in how invasive treatment needs to be. Unfortunately with Madelyn we found out too late and the only option was Surgery. If i can help even 1 child, 1 family to not have to go through this, that to me will be a small victory and a starting point.

We are raising funds to go the the Boston Children's Hospital Hip Preservation Program. To assist in the research and increase awareness to what Hip Dysplasia is. Every dollar will make a big difference.

Thank you so much for your love and support.

Love,
Annie, Ben and Madelyn- Our One Hip Chic!

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!
