CHaD HERO raised $800,000 last year through participant fundraising, donations, and corporate sponsors. What began as a half-marathon run in 2006, has grown to include a competitive 5K run and walk, one-mile family fun run, 25 or 50-mile bike ride, and a 5-mile hike.

Youngsters looking to make a super impact can participate in Cam’s Course, a one-mile circuit promoting fitness and philanthropy to kids.  All events will take participants, decked out in their superhero attire, through the Upper Connecticut River Valley and end on the Dartmouth Green in downtown Hanover.
