We have a young Stingray who needs our help. Jack Farmer was in his 4th season with Stingrays and was sadly diagnosed with Perthes last year. The family have accepted Perthes but still find it incredibly hard not seeing him able to run around and be an energetic 8 year old.
Jack desperately miss Stingrays, especially the thought that he’d be U9 tackle this year. His prognosis is still anywhere between 2 – 5 years and only if the bone dies and re-grows back to the correct shape within the hip.
Stingrays would like to help promote and spread the word to help Jack through his journey. The charity is ‘Pedal Through Perthes’ and with an aim to raise both awareness and funds for Perthes and show that kids with Perthes can still keep active.
There is a charity cycle event on 11 November at RCHK 2-4pm and it would be great if Stingrays could support by taking part. Tsunami are making our T shirts and they have set a deadline of 8th Sept to collect and wear on the day.
The thought behind this is that we wear them as ‘Team Perthes Hong Kong’ on the 11th Nov and hopefully people wear them afterwards when doing something physical and post on our charity media pages to raise the profile of Perthes.
