The CHaD HERO is the premier athletic-fundraising event benefiting the 95,000 kids receiving care at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD). The 16th annual CHaD HERO will be a hybrid event. The majority of the event will take place virtually from September 19 - September 26, 2021, with an in-person 5K Run planned for September 26, 2021 in Hanover, NH.* Virtual participants can sign up to virtually walk, run, bike, hike or complete your own Virtual Quest activity – hike the Appalachian Trail, race across the state, do a read-a-thon, the sky’s the limit – anytime, anywhere from Sept. 19-26. In-person 5K Run participants will complete a 5K loop on the Dartmouth College Green on Sept. 26. *Please note that the live portion of the event is contingent on CDC, state, local, Dartmouth College, and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health guidelines at that time.
