Colin Couch participated in the Doernbecher Freestyle program in 2008 and was happy to give back to OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital where he received treatment for a congenital heart defect. He was able to tell his story through the graphics on the iconic Air Force 1.

A modern-day renaissance kid, Colin shared his love of life, art and fashion with lasered graphics on the upper panels, along with an acrylic paint palette on the outsole of the shoe.  As for Colin, now 23, the renaissance kid has turned into a renaissance dude studying finance at BYU Hawaii. He is currently in the process of getting on the heart transplant list and has high hopes for a brand new heart in the future.
