500 Participants Register for CHaD HERO in 5 Days, Securing $5,000 for CHaD

Maeghan and Luke Finn

CHaD HERO partner Global Rescue issued a challenge to CHaD HERO Headquarters: get 500 participants to register in five days and CHaD will receive an additional $5,000. The “500 in 5 Challenge” took place from Monday, August 12, through Friday, August 16. In true superhero fashion, CHaD supporters swept in to save the day with no time to lose; nearly half of registrants signed up on the last day of the challenge. In the end, 38 teams and over 500 participants registered for the CHaD HERO in five days, securing an extra $5,000 (for a total donation of $10,000!) from Global Rescue!

The 14th Annual CHaD HERO will take place on Sunday, October 20, on the Dartmouth College Green in Hanover, NH. The CHaD HERO is the premier fundraising and athletic event benefiting CHaD. Proceeds are used to help CHaD kids with critical services such as support when they are in pediatric intensive care and management of chronic illnesses, as well as patient and family support services.
