The CHaD HERO is the premier athletic-fundraising event benefitting kids and families receiving care at Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD). We've partnered again with Positive Tracks to help instill the values of philanthropy in youth. Positive Tracks will help all participants 23 or under maximize their fundraising with tips, tools, and training as well as work with our Positive Tracks partners to double funds raised by participants age 23 or under.

100% of the CHaD HERO proceeds fund critical child and family support services, including the Child Life Program, Molly’s Place, and the Child Advocacy & Protection Program.

The CHaD HERO also includes a family-friendly festival of delicious food, music, and entertainment, including the Positive Track's Kidzone. As always, bright colored costumes and super hero outfits are encouraged!

Whether you run, walk, hike, bike, or volunteer; imagine healthy futures, embrace the challenge, support CHaD kids.
