SEA ISLE CITY – The Peyton’s Promise Fun Run and Walk will take to the Sea Isle City Promenade on Saturday, June 7 to raise money for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

Peyton Laricks was born on March 31, 2008 with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH), a defect occurring just once in every 2,500 births. She endured 88 days in intensive care, 12 days on life support and multiple surgeries.

Her family has raised more than $200,000 for CHOP since Peyton’s successful treatment there, according to a press release. 

Her parents, Debbie and Dustin Laricks, said it is their way of “returning the favor to CHOP and helping the 1,600 babies born each year in the United States with CDH.”

This is the sixth year for the run and walk in Sea Isle City. It is set to start with registration at 9:30 a.m. at 43rd Street and the Promenade. The race begins at 11 a.m.

There will be a family-friendly after party, food and raffles.

The cost to participate is $25 for adults and $10 for kids 5-12 years old (kids under 5 participate for free).
