Elena Delle Donne

Celebrating the U.S. Women’s Basketball team’s Olympic gold, Nike donated a pair of Nike Waffle 1 baby shoes to each baby born at Christiana Hospital on Saturday. The shoes, presented to the families in the hospital on Sunday, were packaged with the following message:

“It all starts now. 26 years ago, it started in Wilmington for a little champ just like you. And today, Elena Delle Donne conquered the world. Maybe, someday, that could be you. Or maybe you’ll choose to do something else. There really are no limits to your potential. Whatever you decide, get up. Get out. And get started. Life moves fast. And in these, it will move a little faster. Just do it. Unlimited future.”

Elena Delle Donne is an official spokesperson of Christiana Care Health System. She was born at Christiana Hospital on Sept. 5, 1989.
