Participate in the CHaD HERO virtually from September 19 - September 26, 2021!

Although we had hoped to be able to be back on the Dartmouth College Green in a sea of superhero costumes this year, the decision has been made that this year's CHaD HERO will take place virtually from September 19 - September 26, 2021. We are hopeful that, as public health data and vaccination rates improve, we may be able to accommodate one in-person event element. We will have additional updates on this come July.

Superheroes need to be ready for anything at a moment's notice and we've had our fair share of event hurdles in the past, from moving the 2011 CHaD HERO date with 24 hours to spare because of Hurricane Irene, to re-routing our Half course due to construction, and even a bit of snow on event day. We hope that you will accept this challenge with us and help make the 2021 CHaD HERO another amazing event in support of CHaD kids.

If you have any questions or are in need of assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to CHaD HERO HQ at chadhero@hitchcock.org.

HEROES together, even when we're apart!
