Support CHAD in the DuPage Human Race

CHAD is participating in the 6th annual DuPage Human Race®. The Human Race is a 5k Run / 2-mile Fitness Walk community event bringing people together in support of over 70 charity organizations serving DuPage County. The Race is an event created by Giving DuPage, whose mission is to promote giving and volunteering throughout DuPage County.

CHAD is seeking to raise $5,000. Walkers and runners can designate CHAD to receive the donation from the race fee and can raise additional funds to support CHAD’s mission. All donations made to CHAD for the DuPage Human Race are tax deductible. The donation receipt is the record of the charitable contribution.
