2021 CHaD HERO Details

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.*

In-Person 5K

  • *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.
  • Currently, for safety reasons, we are planning to do a staggered start 5K Run. When you register, you will be asked your pace per mile for a 5K, your expected finish time, and (if applicable) the name of a family member or partner who you will be running with. Any duos planning to run together must enter the same anticipated pace/finish time to ensure that you are paired together for the start.
  • Registration fees for in-person 5K Run participants are $15 for youth (ages 17 and under) and $30 for adults (ages 18 and over).
  • We plan to cap In-person 5K Run registration at 1,000 total participants.
  • At this time, we are unable to provide day-of registration.
  • We are waiving fundraising minimums for this year, however fundraising is still strongly encouraged and we have a variety of fundraising incentives for participants.

Virtual Participant

  • You can do your classic CHaD HERO activities like run, walk, hike, bike, 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! Complete your activity anytime, anywhere, from September 19-26.
  • Registration fees for virtual participants are $10 for youth (ages 17 and under) and $20 for adults (ages 18 and over).
  • Not being tied to a specific geographic location means that you can expand your team and donor base and, ultimately, elevate your fundraising efforts for CHaD.
  • We are waiving fundraising minimums for this year, however fundraising is still strongly encouraged and we have a variety of fundraising incentives for participants.

Registration for the 2021 CHaD HERO closes on Friday, September 24, at 9:00 a.m. ET.
