Wishbone Medical, Clubfoot Solutions launch Clubfoot Awareness Event at Lurie Children’s Hospital

In partnership with Clubfoot Solutions, Joey Gase Racing, and Lurie Children’s Hospital, WishBone Medical sponsored a dynamic Clubfoot Awareness campaign during the 1st NASCAR Chicago Street Race. NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Joey Gase, racing the #08 Car, gave some of the patients of Lurie Children’s Hospital the opportunity to get up close and personal with a real race car before hitting the track in Chicago.

Check out our video from the event below:

CBS 2 Chicago was able to broadcast some details about the event at Lurie Children’s Hospital.

Ahead of the big race, NASCAR driver Joey Gase visited kids at Lurie Children’s Hospital.

Patients got to decorate his car and sign their names.

For kids who couldn’t come outside, he stopped by their rooms and even took on a few patients in Mario Kart.


We want to thank the team at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago for hosting a great event Thursday, and thank you Joey Gase for coming down and meeting our team and kids with Clubfoot.
