Thanks to a great crowd of patients, parents, friends, and family for making our May event “Perthes in the Park” a success at Washington Nationals Ballpark, Washington D.C! Special thanks to Dr. Benjamin Martin of Children’s National Medical Center who joined us on the field and in the stands!
The Washington Nationals honor the accomplishments of various partner charities, groups, and organizations with the National Spirit Award on the field during the pregame ceremonies. Legg Calve Perthes Foundation was excited to be recognized on field and on the big screen! Colleen Rathgeber, Shelley Crawford, Dr. Benjamin Martin were joined on field by Perthes heroes Mason Sutton and Kaelan Rathgeber.
While the Nationals could not pull out a win over LA Dodgers, we all had a great time meeting new and old friends in the Perthes fight. It was a sweltering day but it didn’t deter our spirits! Thanks to all who came out to help spread the word about Perthes and advance our mission of education, support, and advocacy. See you again next year?!
