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.
