Your CHaD HERO Day

The CHaD HERO is so much more than a run or walk, it's a full and fun-filled day to celebrate and support the kids and families of Dartmouth Health Children's and the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (CHaD). In addition to our Half Marathon, 5K Run, 5K Walk, and Cam's Course 1-Mile Fun Run options, there's something for everyone at our HERO festival!
