An event every year that begins at 00:00 on day last of July, repeating indefinitely
When: The last Saturday in July
First occurrence: 2010?
Perthes is a disease where the blood supply to the thigh bone is disrupted leading to bone cells dying, which leads to hip problems.
Surgery is usually needed to make walking easier and less painful.
The original event Paddle for Perthes Disease Awareness Day
was posted via Twitter and Facebook from 2010 to 2013.
However the event was still remembered
despite no events being organized.
So the last Saturday in July still raises awareness for
Perthes Disease even if we don’t paddle.
