About Ladybug CDH Foundation

The Ladybug CDH Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Portland, Oregon. The primary mission of our foundation is to raise public awareness of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), a serious birth defect that occurs in one out of approximately 2,500 births and has a fatality rate of nearly 50%. All race entry fees and product sales for this event will go to fund medical research and directly help children and families whose lives have been impacted by this birth defect.
