Wheaton, IL - Community Housing Advocacy & Development (CHAD) was one of over 50 nonprofit organizations participating in the Giving DuPage 3rd Annual Human Race 5k Run and Fitness Walk to help awareness about the non-profit organizations in DuPage County and provide the community with ways to connect and give back to local organizations. “Team CHAD” enlisted a group of 20 individuals, including board and staff members, CHAD residents, and supporters of the organization, to walk and run on behalf of CHAD. In addition, CHAD was able to raise additional funds from its supporters by establishing a team fundraising page.

“All in all, it was a great day to raise awareness of nonprofit organizations and CHAD”, stated Brian Worth, Executive Director. “I am so proud of the group that walked and ran on our behalf.
