Team Grace Supports CHaD


My name is Grace. I’m 10 years old and I’m back for another year of celebrating and supporting the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock!

I’m very grateful that when my mom got preeclampsia, she was sent to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.  I was born at 33 weeks gestation, and needed help regulating my body temperature and learning how to nurse. I spent my first 18 days of life in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at CHaD. It was a scary time for my family, but the folks at CHaD kept me safe and helped me grow.

CHaD supports so many families with children that need help.  That’s why my family and I participate in the CHaD HERO 5K Walk every year – to thank everyone at CHaD for the amazing, heroic work they do for people like me. Last year, I raised over $1,000 for CHaD through my CHaD HERO fundraising!
