"Exceptionally strong and incredibly joyous," as his mom describes him, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children patient Owen of Dallas has done more than most toddlers his age. In 2009, he inspired his parents to bring together a group of friends and family, made up of 30 runners and 50 cheering fans known as Team Owen, to show their support of him and TSRHC through the MetroPCS Dallas White Rock Marathon. In December 2008, Owen's father Jonathan ran the full marathon on a whim, not knowing that the marathon benefits TSRHC. Less than two months later Owen's parents discovered that he had a right clubfoot, and they were referred to TSRHC for treatment. With TSRHC's Center for Excellence in Clubfoot Research and as a leader among a handful of facilities in the nation that provide two non-operative treatment methods, Owen was in luck. Doctors at TSRHC began casting Owen at 2 weeks old. For three months, Owen wore shoes connected by a bar in the center for 23 hours a day and now only wears the brace at night while he sleeps. A happy and carefree toddler, Owen is learning how to walk independently, and his family continues to support him and other patients treated at TSRHC through Team Owen.
