Support CHAD in the DuPage Human Race

CHAD is participating in the DuPage Human Race on April 25th, 2015 at the Esplanade in Downers Grove. The Human Race is a 5k Run/2 Mile Fitness Walk community event bringing people together in support of over 50 charity organizations serving DuPage County.

CHAD is seeking to raise $5,000 and has established a fundraising page for people wanting to support the organization. Walkers and runners can designate CHAD to receive donations from the race entry fee and can also raise additional funds to support CHAD's mission. 

To register for the race or support Team CHAD with a donation, please refer to the News and Events section of the website for further information.
