Join us for the 3rd Annual Mighty MoJo Memorial Run, in honor of our Molly Joan who fought fiercely for 44 days against Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) at CHOP before passing away in September 2021.  Our hope is to increase awareness of CDH, a condition as common as cystic fibrosis and spina bifida, and raise much needed funding to help make CDH a more manageable diagnosis for the future MoJos of the world.   We've raised over $60,000 in our first two years, and cannot wait for another successful event.   

We are excited to offer sponsors and other supporters a fun-filled morning at beautiful Ridley Creek State Park.  All net proceeds will go to CHOP’s CDH Research Fund, which is continuously coming up with innovative ways to help CDH babies have a better outcome and quality of life.    

4.4 Mile Run and 1 Mile Walk        
Try out this one-of-a-kind distance in honor of MoJo's days lived at this scenic local gem.  Our 4.4 mile run will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2024 at 10 am. The start and finish line will be on the service road along the paved multi-use trail right near Site 11 at Ridley Creek State Park and will follow one full loop along the trail. The race will be professionally timed by Bryn Mawr Race Company. 
We've also planned a 1 Mile Walk for those who prefer to go a shorter distance! The 1 Mile Walk will begin at approximately 10:05 am, and will go in the opposite direction of the runners, with an out and back course.  Walkers are welcome to go further on the trail, but note that the after-race festivities and refreshments may not be available when you return.  

This event is held RAIN OR SHINE.  Remember, there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.  Plan accordingly :-)
