Join us on the Dartmouth Green for the 14th Annual CHaD HERO on October 20, 2019! Registration opens April 29.

The CHaD HERO is the premier fundraising and athletic event benefiting CHaD, Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Starting in 2006 as just a half marathon run, it has grown to include a competitive 5K run, Cam's Course 1 Mile Fun Run, 5K walk, 5 and 7 mile wooded hikes, a limited entry 25 or 50 mile bike ride, one AMAZING family-friendly street party, and the KidZone. There is something for everyone!

CHaD is anywhere kids receive care at Dartmouth-Hitchcock and proceeds from the event support kids and families receiving care at any of CHaD's 14 locations across NH and VT. Check out the 2018 CHaD HERO Annual Report for details about YOUR IMPACT!

We won't lie to you, the USATF-certified half marathon course is challenging, but all of the courses capture the essence of fall in New England starting and ending on the picturesque Dartmouth College Green in Hanover, NH.

Because a HERO'S work is never done, lace up your shoes and help us reach our goal of raising $830,000 to make sure that all CHaD kids get the best care, in the right place, at the right time, every time.


CHaD HERO proceeds are used to help CHaD kids with critical services such as support when they are in pediatric intensive care and management of chronic illnesses, as well as patient and family support services that are so important to the well-being of kids and their futures.

Your support helps kids get back to the business of being kids! To learn more about the impact your CHaD HERO participation and fundraising can have for CHaD kids, click here.
