Our 8th annual 2022 race planning has begun! Race for CDH will be held on Saturday, August 13th, 2022 in the beautiful Eagle Rock Resort, Hazleton PA. We hold a professionally timed 5K Run, 5K Walk, & 10K Run. We offer a FREE kids 1/2 Mile Fun Run. Music, Awards Ceremony, Food & Raffle Baskets make our day an event for the whole family!

Our Foundation was started in memory of my daughter, Arianna Lugo. Arianna was born with CDH (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia) at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She earned her wings in 2013 and will forever live through this foundation. Our mission is to provide assistance for fellow CDH families and raise awareness. We are solely volunteer based. All proceeds from our event benefit CDH families. We offer grants to families in need of assistance from the state of PA, VA, WV, OH, NY, MD, NJ, & DE. We also provide gift cards to families in the NICU and help to support the “Hope Tote” Project run by

Thank you for your continued support in our mission in helping CDH families. Your support has given my family the greatest gift, watching our daughter's memory live on and giving back in her name. We get to witness a community come together making this event possible year after year, the impact leaves me speechless. It is with much gratitude that I say thank you for allowing us to provide for others who are experiencing what our family has faced.
