Ladybug Run for CDH Awareness Virtual 5k/10k

The Ladybug Run for CDH Awareness is one of the most successful, longest-running local events put on entirely by volunteers with all proceeds going directly to a non-profit organization.

This event, typically run in Cook Park, raises funds for the Ladybug CDH Foundation, which funds research and increases awareness of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), a potentially fatal congenital birth defect that affects 1 out of 2500 children born every year. The Foundation also provides assistance directly to families with children born with CDH.

This year, the 5k and 10k are completely virtual and 100% of race registrations still go directly to the Ladybug CDH Foundation. Participants will run their race between now and July 25 (or by August 12, if you don’t really care about where you stack up in results) and submit their race information through Huber Timing.

Registration for either distance is $35, and includes a finisher medal. You’ll also receive a bib that you can pin on while running your race.

About Kelly Barten (1146 Articles)
I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
