Embrace the CHaD HERO Challenge 250!

There is more demand for critical CHaD services than being funded, so we're here to challenge and inspire you to help us meet those needs! That's what Challenge 250 is about. And here's what it boils down to:

  1. a Super Raffle for everyone who raises $250+
  2. a $50,000 challenge grant from The Jack & Dorothy Byrne Foundation
  3. examples of how your fundraising helps CHaD kids


To inspire our CHaD super heroes to leap even taller buildings in a single bound, everyone raising $250 or more is entered into the raffle. Yep, for every $250 you raise you receive one raffle entry ($500 = 2 entries, etc.).

Drawings start happening as early as June 28! The sooner you register and start fundraising the sooner you earn your raffle entries. The schedule for the raffle drawings is available here.

Don't forget the PRIZES! Check out the Super Raffle prizes here.


It's simple, the first 200 participants* who raise $250+ will receive a matching $250 from The Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation - which could add up to a fantastically generous total of $50,000! Those participants will also receive an additional ticket to our super raffle. Remember, we need 200 HEROES to take full advantage of this opportunity!

*One matching donation of $250 per participant. $250 Match will be added to the fundraising page of the first 200 participants to raise $250 after all $50,000 has been raised.


Community service can be fun, but of course what really counts is who benefits and how! Also, every donation regardless of size matters to CHaD kids. Here are some programs that benefit from your fundraising.

  • Child Life Program | Provides personalized social, emotional, and developmental support for children and adolescents during their healthcare encounters - as inpatients and during outpatient procedures, surgeries and difficult visits.
  • Molly's Place at the CHaD Family Center| Provides a soothing but engaging activity area for children, as well as health information and resources, general support and access to financial assistance for families.
  • Child Advocacy and Protection Program (CAPP)| Supports our most vulnerable children being evaluated and managed for child maltreatment; including consultations for physical and sexual abuse and medical neglect in outpatient and inpatient settings.
