Oregon has taken its fascination with flashy uniforms an important step further.

Three young cancer survivors designed the Ducks' "Stomp Out Cancer" uniforms for Saturday's home game against Nebraska. 

The uniforms are part of a Nike collection. All proceeds will go to Doernbecher Children's Hospital, a pediatric cancer center in Portland, Oregon. Nike said it has been teaming up with the hospital's patients for the past 14 years to create footwear and apparel collections that have raised nearly $17 million to date.

The funds allow the hospital to contribute to pioneering medical research, purchase state-of-the-art equipment, recruit leading pediatric specialists and cover costs for families most in need. 

The chance to make a statement was personal for Johnny Ragin III.
