Fun runs

Help us change the outcome for families affected by CDH.

Join an organised event to walk, run, swim, or cycle to raise awareness and funds for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). Set your goal, and then encourage your family, friends, colleagues, exercise buddies, clients, and customers to sponsor you.

Design your own activity


An alternative to joining an organised event is to Do It Yourself and design your own personal activity and goals.


Personal fitness challenge – set a goal to run, swim or cycle a set distance. Or you might create a daily steps target on your fitness app over a month.


Unique challenge – other fundraising activities might include using your craft skills or favourite hobby to raise awareness for CDH. Set a photography challenge and post 30 pics with a yellow theme on your socials, or knit 30 yellow scarves or beanies in a month!


The options are endless!
