Just one day after Elene Delle Donne and the U.S. Women’s Basketball team won Olympic gold, Nike found a way to celebrate the the milestone with a special gift for Delaware families from our hometown hero.

Nike donated a custom pair of Nike Waffle 1 baby shoes to each baby born at Christiana Hospital, where Delle Donne herself was born on September 5, 1989. The bright green shoes with an orange swoosh were presented to three dozen families in the hospital on Sunday, and the package included a special 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.”

Christiana Care Health System was thrilled with the souvenir gifts from Nike and Delaware’s golden girl. A hospital spokesperson said, “We’re feeling especially #DelawareProud today! We’re inspired by our hometown Olympic hero and can’t wait to see the amazing things the next generation of Delawareans will accomplish.”
