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 Positive Tracks KidZone. There is something for everyone.
CHaD is anywhere kids receive care at Dartmouth-Hitchcock and all proceeds from the event support kids and families receiving care at any of CHaD's 14 locations across NH and VT.
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.
Lace up your shoes and help us reach our goal of raising $850,000 to make sure that all CHaD Kids get the best care, in the right place, at the right time, every time.
