Limited Edition Sneakers Designed by CCA Teens


We are proud to introduce CCA’s second collaboration with Cultivator, a platform for creators to tell their stories and champion the causes they believe in, using Nike sneakers. This exclusive collection of three limited-edition sneakers was crafted by members of CCA’s Young Adult Alliance, drawing on their shared experiences battling cancer and serious illness. The collection is available NOW for ONE WEEK ONLY, October 15-21. Only 300 pair of each style will be sold. Proceeds benefit CCA’s free-of-charge programs for kids and teens facing cancer and other serious illness.



ConnectRx: Nike Air Huarache

Designed on a Nike Air Huarache featuring pops of CCA’s iconic purple and special “JOY” badge, this shoe celebrates the new friendships and connections the young adults formed as part of CCA’s Young Alliance. They come from a variety of ages, backgrounds and diagnoses but have quickly become a close-knit community based on their shared experiences.

Room With A View: Nike Air Max 95

While spending their days at Doernbecher and Randall Children’s Hospitals, isolated from the outside world, the young adults each found a measure of peace and comfort simply by looking out the window. This shoe, which is designed on a Nike Air Max 95 with Mt. Hood foothills gradient and “CCA + JOY” heel detail, is a reminder of those calming mountain views.

Shine Bright: Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35

For teens in treatment, some days are better than others, but every day is a struggle to find light and hope in the midst of their battle with serious illness. This shoe, designed on a Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 in all black with metallic gold Swoosh, “STOP ME” badge, and 1995 homage to CCA’s founding year, is a reminder that when everything is dark and bleak, there’s still a ray of light waiting to be found.
