Fundraising Minimums

The CHaD HERO is a fundraising event benefiting more than 60,000 kids who receive care at CHaD, Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. With the exception of Cam's Course and Virtual participants, all participants are expected to raise the minimum amount, even if they are not able to attend the event.

All participants are encouraged to fundraise more than the minimum amount.

Any amount paid at the time of registration DOES NOT count towards each participant's fundraising minimum.

Fundraising requirements need to be met by each individual participant, not a team total. Team members' fundraising is included in their team's total, so by meeting your minimum, you are fundraising for your team.

Fundraising minimums for each registration type are:

Participation Type Fundraising Minimum Due by
October 22 (does not include registration fees)
Cam's Course (any age)
ADULT 5K Walk, 5K Run, Hike or Half-marathon
23 & UNDER 5K Walk, 5K Run, Hike or Half-marathon
Bike Ride - all ages, any distance
Virtual Quest
No Fundraising Minimum
No Fundraising Minimum

Participants who do not reach the required minimum by October 22nd will be asked to pay the outstanding amount when they come to pick up their race bib or t-shirt. That amount may be paid by check, cash or credit card.

Cam's Course Fun Run participants are not subject to a fundraising minimum beyond registration, however fundraising is strongly encouraged.

Donations can be made online, mailed, or brought with you when you pick up your bib. If you are mailing or dropping off donations please include a donor form for each donation. Donations can be dropped off at CHaD HERO headquarters at:
