About the HERO

The CHaD HERO began 17 years ago as a half marathon run to benefit Dartmouth Health Children's and the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (CHaD). Now, the event has expanded to feature a competitive 5K run, a 5K walk, Cam's Course 1 Mile Fun Run and even a virtual component that allows participants to complete their own activity of choice to show their support from anywhere in the world!

Proceeds from the annual event benefit Dartmouth Health Children's commitment to helping all children lead their healthiest, happiest lives.

Not only are families able to receive care throughout various locations in New Hampshire and Vermont, but the flagship Children's Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (CHaD) also serves as New Hampshire's only children's hospital delivering top quality care and services to the children in our region who need it most.
